Career

Noel has over 25 years of experience practicing in the Victorian accident compensation jurisdiction.

After a brief period acting for plaintiffs at the commencement of his career, Noel has, since joining the firm in 1988, acted for the Victorian WorkCover Authority, its authorised insurers and employers in defending statutory benefit and common law damages litigation under the Accident Compensation Act, in both trial and appellate jurisdictions.

In more recent years Noel has also developed a significant self insurer practice comprising major corporations in the banking, entertainment, transport and logistics industries. Through acting for these client’s Noel has broadened his expertise to include claims, risk management and regulatory compliance advice, at times involving interstate jurisdictions. Noel also provides training and advice to his self insurer clients in relation to changes to the law and major developments in practice that may impact upon their businesses.

A highly regarded practitioner in his field, Noel’s depth and breadth of knowledge and expertise is the product of dedication to a career which has traversed numerous, and at times, significant changes to the accident compensation landscape in that period.

Noel also provides training and advice to his self-insurer clients in relation to changes to the law, and major developments in practice that may impact upon their businesses. He also undertakes presentations to his clients, particularly relating to accident compensation, occupational health and safety, risk and claims management, and regulatory compliance issues.
