Charley Ferguson is an associate in our Insurance & Health team and is based in the Melbourne office.
‘I started as a graduate in Barry.Nilsson.’s Brisbane office in 2009, before leaving the firm for a few years to expand my horizons. I spent some time working overseas and in-house in Australia, managing claims for an international brokerage firm and international underwriting agency; both roles giving me an invaluable insight into the inner workings of large insurance organisations. In 2016 I made the decision to return to private practice and back into the Barry.Nilsson. fold as an associate in its Melbourne office.’
Charley’s practice involves handling litigated and unlitigated matters in:
- Professional indemnity
- Public liability
These claims span a wide variety of industry sectors and professions, including construction, plumbing, conveyancing, local government, shopping centres, sporting clubs, real estate agents and property managers.
‘I really enjoy working with insurer clients because they are commercially minded and have a pragmatic approach to claims management and litigation generally.’
Charley has experience working in various jurisdictions including Queensland, Tasmania and Victoria.
‘Barry.Nilsson. has a collegiate culture and collaboration across practice areas is promoted. The firm has an excellent reputation in the marketplace and I feel privileged to be able to work with a team of outstanding insurance specialists.’
Charley has a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Business from QUT and a Diploma of Legal Practice from Griffith University. She is a member of Women in Insurance.
