Australia: CGW experience showcased through committee appointments
Last Updated: 2 March 2011

Two Associates on the Cooper Grace Ward insurance team have recently joined committees relating to their areas of expertise.

Mark Sainsbury was accepted as a Queensland branch committee member of the Aviation Law Association of Australia and New Zealand (ALAANZ).

ALAANZ was established in 1980 with the aims of developing the practise of the law affecting the aviation industry and the exchange of information about aviation law. The Association now has a membership in excess of 350 members from a number of countries. Members include representatives from the legal, insurance, airport, airline and general aviation fields.

Mark’s appointment continues Cooper Grace Ward’s long association with ALAANZ, which began with partner Kevin Bartlett who is a former president of the Queensland branch committee.

The Queensland committee comprises three lawyers who practise aviation law, representatives from an aviation insurer and insurance brokers, an airline representative and a barrister.

Also, Lana Head has been appointed as a member of the 2011 Queensland committee for the Australian Insurance Law Association (AILA). AILA is a national non-profit organisation that was formed in 1983 to provide a forum for the promotion, review, development and debate of insurance law. It is the Australian chapter of the International Association for Insurance Law.

The State committee arranges and convenes events throughout the year, including the annual Insurance Law Intensive, working to achieve the AILA objective of being a highly regarded educator in insurance law issues in the Australian insurance industry.

The Association's members include underwriters, claims managers, brokers, adjusters, reinsurers, lawyers, academics and regulators.
