"From the outset of my time at BN, the diverse variety of matters I have been involved in is something I have really enjoyed. Working with a range of insureds across various industries has been incredibly rewarding and I believe it has been an ideal way to commence my career in insurance law."

Prior to commencing his clerkship at BN, Nicholas gained experience working at a boutique family law practice as well as working for a commercial barrister.

"I think it is important to establish a healthy rapport with clients and insureds at the outset in order to establish effective channels of communication and encourage the efficient resolution of matters."

"The diversity of BN’s practice areas as well as the wealth of experience and expertise among existing staff appealed to me. This has created a very supportive learning environment which has been ideal in allowing me to develop my skills and knowledge."
