Georgia is an senior associate in our Insurance & health team and is based in our Perth office.
"I really like the fact that Barry.Nilsson. has a core focus on a small number of practice areas. I welcome being part of a specialist firm where client service is paramount."
Georgia represents large insurers and their insureds in a range of matters, including in the areas of:
- Directors’ and officers’ liability
- Risk management
- Public liability
Georgia also has extensive experience in professional indemnity and contractual claims including claims against engineers, architects, project managers, real estate agents and surveyors. Additionally, Georgia is experienced in compulsory third party (CTP) claims and workers' compensation claims.
"I work with insurer clients and insureds from all different backgrounds. It’s great to learn more about the different professions of our insureds. I enjoy not only helping clients resolve disputes, but identifying risk areas. I help clients (insureds) mitigate and control those risks to minimise potential future claims and complaints. Reaching the best result for the client and insured in the circumstances of each claim is always satisfying."
Prior to joining BN in 2018, Georgia worked in the UK for a global law firm. She also spent a period in Canada where she worked at a Canadian national law firm. During this time she advised on high profile sensitive insurance defence matters, which included abuse claims.
Georgia has a Bachelor of Laws and holds a Graduate Diploma of Applied Risk Management and Corporate Governance from the Governance Institute of Australia. In 2016, Georgia was named National Dux for Applied Risk Management through the Governance Institute. Georgia is member of the Law Society of WA.
