‘I was drawn to insurance law by the diversity that insurance litigators are exposed to and the need to constantly develop technical knowledge in other industries. One day I might be inspecting a lift control room regarding an alleged fault, the next I’m at a mediation making submissions about the adherence to safety procedures at a processing plant or mine. I always go the extra mile to ensure that I understand my client’s business operations and objectives and appreciate that the outcome my clients are seeking will not always be the same.’
Megan was selected by her peers for inclusion in the 2016 to 2019 editions of Best Lawyers in Australia for Insurance. She has a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Arts. She is a member of the Queensland Law Society, the Australian Insurance Law Association (AILA) and the Brisbane Women’s Club.
