Craig is a highly experienced insurance lawyer, having practised exclusively in personal injury law for nearly 30 years. He has extensive experience in workers’ compensation, public liability and professional negligence matters. Craig also worked for 18 months in London for a City firm advising Lloyds underwriters on employer and public liability claims.

In recent years, Craig has specialised in handling CTP matters, acting for the major insurers active in this sector of the Queensland insurance market.

Craig’s across-the-board technical expertise allows him to deal efficiently with all aspects of the matters he conducts, including provision of strategic and commercially sound advice, the drafting of pleadings, and the conduct of settlement conferences and mediations. In addition, his experience acting for both claimants and insurers allows him to offer a balanced perspective to his insurer clients.

Craig is committed to the timely and cost effective resolution of his clients’ claims. On those rare occasions when it is not possible to achieve an outcome through negotiation, he has the experience and expertise to take matters to trial, having conducted trials at every level in the Queensland court system.

Craig travels frequently to regional areas of Queensland to service the needs of his corporate clients. He also regularly presents legal updates and seminars to his corporate clients.
