Record number of firm and individual listings in the 2020 Edition of Doyle's Guide

Barry.Nilsson.'s Insurance & Health team has achieved a record number of firm and individual listings in the 2020 Edition of Doyle's Guide.

Maintaining their listings across every defendant insurance category in this year's edition, the Barry.Nilsson. team has received 19 firm listings, along with the recognition of 23 of their Principals and Special Counsel across Australia.

Six of Barry.Nilsson.'s Insurance & Health principals have also been named as Preeminent Lawyers across various categories, while Perth Principal Toby Barrie was named Market Leader for Leading Professional Indemnity Lawyers in Western Australia - the highest possible ranking in Doyle’s Guide.

Doyle’s Guide is an annual peer-review survey recognising leaders in various areas of law from around Australia.

For Barry.Nilsson., these listings have highlighted the strength of their local insurance knowledge combined with the growth of their national presence in recent years. BN Principal and National Insurance Leader, Rhett Kennedy said that recognition in this year's Doyle's Guide was "consistent with the commitment made to our clients to provide access to the very best of local experts on a national basis, and a testament to the quality of our people and the consistent service we offer nationally".
