AGS has a network of lawyers with significant experience in insurance and risk management, including the interpretation and application of commercial insurance policies.

We advise clients on risk allocation requirements for contracts, and the interaction of commercial insurance arrangements on their transactions. We use our litigation expertise daily, as we successfully pursue or defend claims involving commercial insurers (see Dispute Resolution for more details).

Many of our lawyers have substantial private-practice legal experience, acting for and against large Australian and international insurers and advising private business entities in relation to their insurance needs, recovery under insurance policies and litigation of insurance claims.
