Australia: Norton Rose appoints Tricia Hobson as head of insurance for Asia Pacific
Last Updated: 20 March 2013

Sydney: International legal practice Norton Rose has appointed Tricia Hobson to the newly created role of Asia Pacific Head of Insurance. Tricia took up the new role on 1 January 2013.

Tricia has been with the practice as a partner for 5 and a half years. She is a specialist in insurance and reinsurance, with a focus on financial services and construction. Tricia has acted for major Australian and international financial institutions and their insurers, and has represented them in significant Supreme and Federal Court proceedings.

Asia Pacific has become an increasingly active region for global insurers in recent years, a trend which has gathered pace with the continued emergence of economies such as Indonesia onto the international stage.

James Bateson, global head of financial institutions at Norton Rose, commented:

"Asia Pacific is incredibly important for us. We have 12 offices across the region, and have worked on some of the most significant insurance matters there in recent years. We've been looking at ways we can better structure our team to make sure we stay at the forefront of what is a swiftly changing sector, and the appointment of Tricia to this new role is a huge step towards achieving that.

"Tricia is a highly talented and well respected lawyer, both within the legal profession itself and amongst major financial institutions. She has a strong strategic vision for our Asia Pacific team, and I'm looking forward to working with her to put it into action."

Tricia Hobson, Asia Pacific head of insurance at Norton Rose, commented:

"The insurance market across Asia Pacific is diverse and quickly changing. It encapsulates both emerging and highly developed economies, and is home to some of the biggest and fastest growing financial institutions. The result is a vibrant insurance sector with huge opportunities for growth. I'm excited to be taking up this new role at such a time, and look forward to building on the success the practice has already seen in the region."

The global insurance team at Norton Rose provides leading corporate and M&A, commercial, regulatory, litigation and other support specific to the insurance and reinsurance sector. The practice's clients include many major global insurance and reinsurance companies and brokers.
