As the General Manager of New South Wales, Ivan draws on his considerable experience in personal injury law to lead his team. He’s worked in the legal industry for more than 30 years, building a reputation based on his work with clients who’ve sustained serious brain or spinal injuries.
“It is a great honour and a privilege to assist my clients. I never take them for granted. Particularly when they invite me into their home and treat me like I’m one of the family.”
To Ivan, empathy and people skills are essential when it comes to assisting a client with their compensation claim. He appreciates he can’t do it all himself — being supported by a great team is essential to the best result being achieved for the client.
Ivan knows how life-changing a successful compensation claim can be. At one stage, Ivan worked on a matter on behalf of a three-month-old boy who suffered a severe brain injury in a car accident that killed both his parents. The matter settled for $16 million, at the time it was the highest settlement of its kind ever awarded in New South Wales.
Ivan is involved with Wheelchair Sports NSW, an organisation that supports sporting leagues for people with a disability. He’s an ambassador of The Charity Challenge, a corporate golf series that raises proceeds for local charities.
