‘The culture at Barry.Nilsson. is very friendly and supportive. I’ve been involved in some great matters and enjoy having the opportunity to work on, and take responsibility for, large, complex files. The work is interesting, complicated and technical, and no two files are the same. I also enjoy having the opportunity to learn about the industries that the insureds operate in and the fact that I get to deal with a diverse range of people. On any one day I might talk to or interact with insureds varying from large companies to elderly homeowners.’
Daniella’s clients include:
- national insurance companies
- national shopping centre management companies
- financial institutions
‘I’m lucky to work with clients who are savvy and commercial, and who understand the risks involved with running claims. I’ve worked hard to establish strong working relationships with them, so they know they can trust our advice and are happy to go with the approaches we recommend.’
Daniella has a Bachelor of Arts and a Juris Doctorate, as well as a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice. She is a member of Women in Insurance.
