Asbestos and silicosis litigation, occupational health and safety, workers compensation, public liability litigation; policy advice, interpretation and construction of wordings; advice to corporate clients on dust diseases matters.
A specialist in asbestos and silicosis litigation, Anthony develops innovative solutions to the exceptionally challenging problems facing uninsured corporations, insurers and the WorkCover Authority of New South Wales.
Anthony's experience dealing with workers compensation claims started from his admission as a solicitor in 1978 to date. Initially for City Mutual General Insurance Limited then when that was consumed by QBE, QBE and since coming to Hunt & Hunt in 2002 the WorkCover Authority of New South Wales acting in claims made against insolvent insurers; and in addition to a lesser extent receiving instructions from Allianz, Employers Mutual Limited and QBE.
Anthony’s commitment to asbestos advice and litigation is at least equal to his peers in this area of work:
- Regularly undertaking asbestos related matters in a number of states across Australia
- Instrumental in helping the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) to develop its National Asbestos Management Plan, which proved invaluable during an investigation following a complaint by an employee/resident of the DHA regarding the presence of asbestos in a property he occupied
- Advising many long-term clients, including WorkCover Authority of New South Wales and Boral Limited.
