Annaliese’s extensive experience in defending personal injury claims and advising on regulatory matters gives her a unique perspective on the concerns held by professionals in indemnity claims and the means by which to consistently and solidly defend these claims.
“I approach litigation from a client-centric perspective, particularly focusing on the commercial needs of my clients. I work with my clients and their insureds to achieve an agreed approach based on a holistic understanding of the claim."
