Stephen Williams has practised almost exclusively in insurance law since 1986. He joined Kott Gunning in 2007, having previously been a partner at Pynt & Partners and at Freehills. His practice covers a range of insurance related matters, almost invariably for defendants (insurers and employers), principally in the workers compensation or employers indemnity, personal injury and public liability areas. This practice includes straightforward personal injury claims where both liability and quantum are disputed as well as more complex disputes involving multiple dates of injury or multiple employer/insurer situations and indemnity disputes. He also has asbestos litigation experience. Mr Williams is a member of the Australian Insurance Law Association (AILA) and a past president and current committee member of AILA’s WA chapter.
