Thomas McLaughlin

Graduate

Thomas is Solicitor in our Insurance and Health team based in our Brisbane office.

His particular areas of expertise are:

  • CTP claims
  • Public Liability
  • Property

“Since joining BN at the start of 2019, I have worked in our public liability insurance division, representing a range of clients from local authorities to occupiers of commercial premises. During this period, I have also faced exposure to a number of CTP claims, and assisted in numerous litigated multi-million dollar property claims. The dynamic nature of insurance work means that I am constantly exposed to a variety of unpredictable and distinct factual scenarios, which ensures that every working day is different to the last.”

“From a formative viewpoint, I believe BN’s two year graduate program is an invaluable opportunity, which has allowed me to gain experience in a number of different practice areas while under the guidance of our industry-leading principals. The flexible and collegial atmosphere of BN upholds a supportive network which fosters professional development and work-life balance. I think BN’s unwavering focus on maintaining this workplace culture distinguishes it from other firms in the industry, and explains our remarkably low turnover of lawyers.”

Bachelor of Laws/ Bachelor of Journalism from the Queensland University of Technology, Diploma of Practical Legal Training (QUT), and currently finishing a Diploma of Languages (Japanese) from Griffith University.
