“I enjoy the problem solving nature of insurance law. In particular, the investigatory process, and being able to disentangle complex issues and reach practical outcomes for all involved. The diverse range of fact scenarios in insurance law means that no two matters are the same nor are the insured’s we work with which keeps the work both challenging and interesting.”

“It was important for me to be able to start my legal career in a supportive environment with high quality mentoring. Barry.Nilsson.’s technical expertise and reputation, along with its friendly and down to earth culture is what appealed to me most. The firm has grown so much in the past few years and I am excited to be a part of an expanding national firm.”
