When Rain Is Not a Storm

6 March 2013 - 4:16pm

In the aftermath of the recent rains and floods in Queensland and New South Wales insurers are likely to have been inundated (pun intended) with claims for water damage to insured properties said to have resulted from rain and floods.

Insurance Law

Insurance is essentially about risk. How to manage risk. How to control risk. How to price risk.

At Grace, we have an in-depth understanding of risk from our comprehensive experience in acting for all stakeholders, from major insurers, re-insurers and underwriters to strata schemes, bodies corporate, lot owners and property owners.

Utilising our experience and expertise, our clients receive proper and timely advice covering all issues and perspectives from the outset of a matter.
