Australia: Norton Rose Fulbright bolsters insurance team with senior partner appointment in Brisbane
Last Updated: 20 October 2015

Global legal practice Norton Rose Fulbright announced today that experienced insurance lawyer Brett Solomon has joined as a partner in Brisbane. This follows the addition this year of insurance partner Mark Attard in Melbourne and senior insurance litigator Jehan-Philippe (JP) Wood in Perth, joining from our London office.

Mr Solomon was most recently head of the national insurance group at DibbsBarker. He had led this group since 2011 and before that worked for more than a decade at Ebsworth & Ebsworth (now HWL Ebsworth).

Mr Solomon has acted for underwriters, brokers, self-insureds, claims handlers and other stakeholders in the insurance industry for over 20 years. His experience is in advising on professional indemnity, D&O, public and products liability, casualty, workers' compensation and occupational health and safety. He acts for domestic and London-based insurers as well as ASX-listed companies.

Norton Rose Fulbright Managing Partner in Australia, Wayne Spanner, said the appointment of Mr Solomon would further bolster a growing national insurance team and add another high quality partner to the Brisbane office.

"We are pleased to be able to offer our clients an increasing number of talented senior lawyers in our respected national insurance practice," he said. "The addition of Brett will only enhance our reputation for high-quality contentious, corporate and regulatory insurance advice."

Mr Solomon said he was looking forward to joining an elite global legal practice.

"After spending two decades advising the best of the insurance industry in Australia, as well as having considerable experience working with London-based underwriters, I felt the time was right to join Norton Rose Fulbright and be a part of its highly successful insurance team," he said.

Norton Rose Fulbright in Australia has added seven other new lateral partners so far in 2015: John Elliott, Andrea Rezos, Emanuel Confos, Benny Bernarto (Jakarta), Nadia Soraya (Jakarta), Mark Attard and Global Head of our Energy practice Simon Currie (from Norton Rose Fulbright in London).
