David joined TurksLegal in 2019 as a Special Counsel in our Brisbane General Insurance team, bringing with him over 20 years’ experience in insurance.
David specialises in the strategic defence of personal injury and professional indemnity claims including public liability and workers’ compensation, as well as general insurance, indemnity advice and dispute resolution.
David has worked in both private practice and in-house at insurers, most recently heading up an internal national litigation and dispute resolution team for a top ASX corporation, including national self-insured workers’ compensation portfolio. He is recognised as an expert in personal injury and insurance litigation with a deep understanding of client’s requirements borne of personal experience.
Significant claims that David has been involved in include a multi-party class action arising from a failed third party litigation funding scheme in the UK, and the successful defence of a high-profile personal injury claim involving allegations of negligence against directors personally and misconduct by solicitors, counsel and the judiciary.
