Jessica leads the Heavy Motor, Plant & Equipment team, and Marine team, both of which continue to grow exponentially.

Jessica is an experienced litigation lawyer passionate about complex heavy motor, marine, plant and equipment matters and is dedicated to ensuring she obtains the best result for both her insurer and private clients. She has a broad depth of experience in general insurance litigation, complex heavy motor, plant & equipment claims, marine claims and indemnity disputes (including policy interpretation). This includes claims relating to the Australian Consumer Law, including defective goods claim and the application of the unfair contract term provisions in so far as they relate to transport contracts. Jessica loves to solve problems and helps insurers, as well as transport companies, and to fight the good fight in defending claims and recovering large losses.

Jessica prides herself on recovering (and defending) high value claims involving complex legal principles and ensuring efficiency whilst seeking to achieve the best possible outcome for her clients. In doing so, Jessica has created long-lasting relationships with her clients which are built on trust and effective communication.

Throughout her years’ of experience, Jessica has successfully defended multi-million dollar claims and continues to recover large losses on behalf of her clients every day.
