The appointment of Special Counsel David Chong is set to benefit Colin Biggers & Paisley's clients, as he brings more than 20 years of litigation experience to the insurance team in Sydney.

David will bring a wealth of knowledge to the team following an extensive career in general liability, personal injury litigation, asbestos litigation and worker's compensation claims, working with a range of clients pursuing varied claims objectives whilst maintaining open, honest and transparent lines of communication.

Co-Head of Insurance, Gavin Creighton, said the team was thrilled to have David joining the ranks, rounding out an already strong team.

"This appointment is an investment into strengthening an already agile and effective team, Gavin commented.

"As well as taking on complex property matters, David's appointment bolsters our busy national casualty practice and supports our growth trajectory in this area."

"David's career growth is testament to his drive to push himself professionally since the start of his legal career and he has demonstrable experience in defending claims on behalf of a variety of clients. We can't wait to watch him make his mark at Colin Biggers & Paisley." 

This announcement follows the appointment of Selcuk Gokmen to the insurance team in Melbourne.
