Colin Biggers & Paisley is pleased to announce the appointment of Michelle Morgan as a special counsel in their insurance team in Sydney.

Michelle specialises in complex litigation and has significant experience in professional indemnity, directors’ & officers’ liability, management liability, major property damage and fidelity claims, including a number of high profile/multi-party disputes and shareholder class actions. She has appeared in Courts at all levels of federal and state jurisdictions. Her practice focuses on professional indemnity and directors & officers liability insurance, advising on all aspects of claims including indemnity as well as front end policy issues.

Managing Partner Nick Crennan said he is excited by the growth and success of the insurance practice over the past year, noting that the practice continues to attract high caliber talent.

"Our insurance practice has undergone significant growth in recent times and has had impressive success in a number of areas. The appointment of Michelle Morgan will play an important role in continuing the success of the practice, particularly through her experience in professional indemnity and D&O liability insurance claims."

The insurance practice as well as a number of insurance partners, including Patrick Monahan, Greg Skehan and Keith Bethlehem were recently recognised in Chambers Asia-Pacific 2019 for their expertise in insurance.

The insurance practice also welcomed special counsel Katrina Gillies and senior associate John McGirr its Melbourne team late last year.
