Tiarn has extensive insurance experience in recoveries, construction, industrial special risks claims, property, professional indemnity claims, coverage disputes, fraud and financial lines matters. Tiarn has acted for a range of insurers and underwriting agencies across Australia offering technical and strategic advice to insurance claims teams and insureds directly.
The scope of her experience comes from working in law firms and in-house at a major insurer and includes advising on coverage issues across a range of policies (including directors’ and officers’ liability, management liability, professional indemnity and ISR products) and defending complex claims in multiple jurisdictions. She has also managed several recoveries projects for insurers, often involving both insured and uninsured losses, and is able to effectively manage the often competing interests that arise where the recovery pool is limited.
Tiarn has efficiently and autonomously handled key responsibilities since early in her career. She previously managed a team of lawyers and recoveries specialists, which complemented loss adjusters, forensic accountants and factual investigators to offer an end to end service to clients and involved co-ordination of numerous professionals and teams to achieve results. Tiarn takes a pragmatic and commercial approach to her matters and knows the importance of acting efficiently.
Tiarn enjoys an excellent network of underwriters, brokers, solicitors, barristers, assessors and internal dispute resolution professionals, which enables her to deliver highly effective assistance to insureds and brokers in responding to claims.
