Top Honours for Outstanding Leader

National specialist insurance law firm Gilchrist Connell is very proud to announce that Perth Principal John-Paul Wilson is the single Australian recipient of the Lexology Client Choice Award for Insurance.  Winners are selected from thousands of nominations – exclusively from corporate counsel.

This accolade comes hot on the heels of John-Paul’s recognition as a Life Member of the Australian Insurance Law Association late last year.  He also achieved top tier ‘preeminent’ ranking for workers compensation in the 2018 Doyle’s Guide.

“Such high level tributes for JP come as no surprise to the rest of us, however he is far too occupied with keeping his clients happy to have seen any of it coming,” said Managing Principal Richard Wood.

“JP is incredibly committed and his technical expertise is second to none – particularly in resolving highly complex, sensitive or difficult matters.  Clients value his reassuring, affable approach and he’s also famous for the odd fashion quirk!  JP thoroughly deserves these honours and we hope he’ll come to enjoy his well-earned limelight,” said Richard.

John-Paul has practised in the area of insurance law and litigation for more than 26 years and handles general liability claims for some of Australia’s biggest insurers.
