Australia: Ray Giblett, one of Australia's leading insurance lawyers, joins Norton Rose Fulbright
Last Updated: 30 April 2014

Global legal practice Norton Rose Fulbright announced today that it has appointed Ray Giblett as a partner in the Sydney office.

Mr Giblett, who was previously with national law firm Gadens, is recognised as one of Australia's leading insurance lawyers. He advises leading insurers on prudential regulation, distribution arrangements, policy and treaty wording, and corporate governance. He has also acted in a range of complex insurance disputes, including directors and officers (D&O) coverage issues arising from corporate collapses. He has been a partner at Gadens since 2008, and prior to that was at Clayton Utz for 12 years.

Wayne Spanner, managing partner of Norton Rose Fulbright Australia, said Mr Giblett would bolster the practice's insurance expertise in Australia.

"Our insurance practice is recognised, both in Australia and overseas, as a market leader," Mr Spanner said. "Ray has a strong background in insurance and will offer our firm a specialist corporate advisory insurance capability. Insurance is a core practice area for Norton Rose Fulbright, both in Australia and globally. Therefore, we see his appointment as strengthening our alignment with expert insurance and reinsurance partners in our London offices and throughout the Asia-Pacific region. We are very pleased to welcome him to our team."

Mr Giblett said he was looking forward to joining a premier global legal practice.

"Norton Rose Fulbright has all the ingredients I was looking for in a top legal practice – outstanding partners in a market-leading insurance practice with the international depth required to offer seamless coverage across borders," he said.

Mr Giblett has Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Science degrees, and is recognised as one of Australia's top lawyers in insurance:
