Specialist Insurance law firm Gilchrist Connell expands with fifth office

Specialist insurance law and defendant litigation firm, Gilchrist Connell, has announced that it will open an office in Brisbane from August 27 this year. The boutique insurance law firm already has offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth and will be one of only a few [if not the only] specialist insurance law firm with an on-ground presence in every mainland state.

The Brisbane office will be headed by Principal David Flint. David has 20 years’ experience in insurance law in the Queensland market and will bring a number of new client relationships to the firm as well as enhancing the firm’s national offering for local and international insurers. He has particular experience in professional indemnity, coverage disputes, policy drafting and complex liability claims.

Since its inception in 2008, Gilchrist Connell has sought to offer its insurance clients a national ‘one stop shop’ for insurance law services. Having opened three offices in four years in response to continually increasing demand – and as one of the country’s fastest growing law firms – it is clear that the market values its strong track record and dedicated, specialist expertise.

“Our new Brisbane Principal, David Flint, makes a wonderful addition to our team. We’re committed to working with individuals who absolutely get client service, are ‘boots and all’ part of our highly focussed national team, and of course demonstrate the requisite insurance law skills and experience.  David ticks all of those boxes and we are confident the Brisbane office will go from strength to strength under his leadership,” said Richard.

It’s a particularly dynamic time for the firm as the new office opening is being announced following The Australian’s recent EOFY law firm survey listing Gilchrist Connell as the fourth fastest-growing firm in the nation.

“I am excited to be joining Gilchrist Connell. The firm’s ethos and approach to servicing the insurance industry matches mine and its growth over the last few years is testament that it is providing what the insurance industry requires of its lawyers,” said David.

The Brisbane office is located at Level 2, Wesley House, 140 Ann Street.
