Glenn specialises in industrial accident litigation with an emphasis on workers compensation and work injury damages claims. He has almost 30 years’ experience and is recognised as an industry expert.

Glenn acts for Australia’s major insurers as well as many self-insured corporations. He is also the preferred legal advisor to a number of large employers.

He acted for Woolworths in a successful defence of a special leave application in the High Court in the matter of Woolworths ats Lister, a decision which impacted on the statutory definition of award under the Workers Compensation Act (NSW).

In addition to litigated claims, Glenn has provided advice to his insurer clients on claims management issues. He has also provided advice to employers making the transition to self-insurership and has drafted a number of self insurer manuals for that purpose.

Glenn is widely recognised for his client focus and ability to achieve commercial results through the conciliation and arbitration process.

Glenn was accredited by the Law Society of NSW in 1994 as an Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury. He was subsequently appointed as an Examiner of other lawyers seeking the same accreditation.
