Jason Newman has worked for insurers in product, public and professional liability claims for over 20 years.  He has a particular interest in indemnity disputes, especially tricky non-disclosure cases. Although he handles claims across the insurance spectrum, he has developed a significant practice in the property and education sectors and has advised many insurers, real estate professionals, schools and teachers on claims and potential claims against them.  His clients include Catholic Church Insurances, RealCover, several major brokers and Lloyds Syndicates.
Jason is an engaging speaker and presents highly rated workshops and seminars on a wide range of insurance education and property topics for both legal and non-legal audiences.  He is a member of the board of the Australian and New Zealand Education Law Association. He was previously a board member of the Victorian branch of the Australian Insurance Law Association and has been a regular presenter at AILA events.   He has served on the Ethics Committee of the Law Institute of Victoria (LIV) for over 10 years, and is a past recipient of the Legal Ethics Award from the LIV.
Jason was selected for inclusion in the Asia Pacific Legal 500 (2011/12 & 2013/14) for Insurance.
When not thinking about insurance he is hoping for a Richmond win and figuring out how to sneak alcohol into everything he cooks.
