Felicity is a Senior Associate in our Insurance and Health team and is based in our Brisbane office.
Felicity specialises in:
- Medical malpractice claims
- Statutory investigations and professional conduct claims made against health practitioners.
Working with medical and allied health professionals, Felicity’s expertise extends to professional conduct matters, hearings before administrative Tribunals, and Coronial Inquiries. She is also experienced in advising on policy interpretation and coverage. Felicity has acted in claims with high quantum concerning catastrophic injury, and has an interest in complex liability claims, in particular, where causation is difficult to determine.
Prior to joining BN, Felicity worked in both large and specialist legal practices, advising and assisting medical and allied health practitioners. She has also worked within a Medical Defence Organisation as a claims manager, and is experienced in defending civil claims and responding to complaints and statutory processes across both New South Wales and Queensland.
"I take an empathetic and pragmatic approach to claims and disciplinary processes. I have seen the significant stress placed upon professionals who have claims or complaints brought against them and I am keen to minimise the stress and worry where possible and, if appropriate, to negotiate a favourable outcome and resolve the claim as soon as practicable."
"The Barry.Nilsson. Insurance & Health team has a wide breadth of experience and a friendly culture. The team provides top quality advice and a personal approach to its health practitioner and insurance clients. It is a privilege to be part of the team."
Felicity holds a Bachelor of Laws and Diploma of Legal Practice.
