Rosalind Gilsenan

Special Counsel

Rosalind is a special counsel in our Insurance & Health team and is based in Melbourne.

‘Having practiced as both a defendant and plaintiff solicitor at some of Australia’s leading law firms, I have gained extensive experience in all facets of insurance law. What appealed to me about Barry.Nilsson. was the professional, practical and expert reputation of its staff.’

Rosalind’s clients include domestic and international insurers and self-insureds. She is experienced in advising on and managing claims in the areas of:

  • Public liability
  • Product liability
  • Property damage
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Professional indemnity

Rosalind is involved in every aspect of her matters. She advises and works with clients at all stages including negotiating settlements, often where there were multiple defendants and complex issues, and, where necessary, running trials.

‘I enjoy building and maintaining strong working relationships with insurers and self-insureds. These relationships allow me to become familiar with the nature of my clients’ business and give me an indepth understanding of their commercial objectives. As part of my approach, and as an accredited mediator, I continually look for opportunities for settlement to occur where appropriate.”

Rosalind is recognised in the 2021 edition of Best Lawyers for Insurance Law.

Rosalind is an accredited mediator under the National Mediator Accreditation System.  She is experienced in mediating public liability claims, workers’ compensation common law claims and commercial disputes.

Rosalind holds a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts (Hons) (Political Science). She is a member of the Law Institute of Victoria and Women in Insurance.
