Hannah Savins is a senior associate in our Insurance & Health team. She joined the firm in 2008 and is based in the Brisbane office. In 2011 Hannah moved to Canada to spend two years working as a Manager in the Claims Programs division of the Insurance Corporation of British Colombia, the Province of BC’s monopoly auto-insurer. She returned to Australia and to Barry.Nilsson. in 2014.

Hannah’s areas of expertise are:

  • Public liability, including claims for nervous shock and catastrophic injuries
  • Product liability
  • Workplace injuries and fatalities
  • Property and transport claims
  • Anti-discrimination matters

"My practice at Barry.Nilsson. requires me to advise clients on diverse scenarios and to distil legal concepts into easy to understand language. I enjoy making the law accessible to non-lawyer clients."

Hannah acts for a broad range of clients, including:

  • insurers
  • building and construction companies
  • host employers
  • transport operators in the trucking and heavy motor industry
  • commercial and residential occupiers
  • real estate agents
  • education providers

"I enjoy working collaboratively with my clients to problem solve. For file management and to achieve the best possible resolution to a claim, it’s essential to be able to have frank and pragmatic dialogue with them in regards to outcomes and strategies."

In addition to her day-to-day practice, Hannah also facilitates a number of BN's in-house training and education programs, and has delivered a number of workshops to insurance professionals.

"I enjoy teaching and collaborative learning environments. Having worked in-house, I understand how important it is for insurance, broking and risk management professionals who are dealing with complex legal issues on a daily basis to have access to high-quality training."
