Private Sector


Wallmans Lawyers has a recognised Insurance team with a long history of acting for state, national and international insurers, self-managed and discretionary liability funds, professional indemnity insurance providers, insurance brokers and self-insured commercial organisations across a range of industries.

We understand the need to promptly and efficiently resolve or progress claims. Our focus is on strategic, solution-based advice from the outset, including advising on appropriate claim estimates and positive action to minimise exposure to damages and costs.

We have a reputation for the provision of clear, consistent and current advice on issues of indemnity, liability and quantum, level of risk exposure and recommended action for best resolution including potential claims for recovery and contribution.

As part of our philosophy, we recommend and use alternative dispute resolution options to reduce costs, delays and risk, and actively identify positive and early opportunities for the settlement of claims.

Our commitment to protecting our clients’ interests ensures that when matters do proceed to litigation we deliver commercial results and outcomes. Our range of expertise means we are readily able to give consideration to the potential impact of judicial precedent on insurers and industry groups. The depth of our experience means that external counsel are retained only where necessary.

We offer you:

  • Clarity and certainty
  • Timely outcomes
  • Cost efficiency
  • Sensible advice
  • Responsive and friendly lawyers

Our Insurance clients include major medical and dental insurers, other professional indemnity insurers, international and national marine and transport insurers, self-managed Local Government insurers and property insurers.

Our team is one of the most experienced in South Australia and is headed by three Partners and three dedicated consultants, together with a full service team of legal practitioners. As a result, we are well resourced to effectively handle both large volume and urgent work in a timely and cost effective manner.
