Thanh Bui is a special counsel in the insurance team with a focus on the litigation of professional indemnity claims.
Thanh has defended solicitors and barristers, on instructions from their professional indemnity insurer, since the beginning of her practising career in 2009. This work has provided her with extensive experience in all Victorian jurisdictions (from the Supreme Court of Victoria to VCAT) and the Federal Court of Australia.
Thanh also acts for other professionals, including building surveyors, engineers, land surveyors, mortgage brokers, accountants and auditors, on instructions from their professional indemnity insurers in the defence of professional negligence claims.
Thanh considers and recommends strategies at an early stage, which are not only in line with her clients' assessed risks and exposure but take into consideration their needs and aims where possible.
Thanh was an associate to an Associate Judge of the Supreme Court of Victoria for two and a half years after she was admitted to practice. Her associateship gave her insight into the working world "behind the scenes" of the Court, and as a result she has extensive knowledge of Civil Procedure.
Thanh was admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of NSW in 2006, and is also admitted to practice in the High Court of Australia. She joined Colin Biggers & Paisley in 2015.
