15 April 2021
DWF, the global provider of integrated legal and business services, is delighted to see strong recognition within the 2022 Edition of The Best Lawyers in Australia for various practice areas including Insurance Law, Litigation, Personal Injury Litigation, and Occupational Health and Safety Law.

The inclusions in the 2022 Edition of The Best Lawyers in Australia demonstrate DWF’s high calibre of expertise across the business and its solid position within the Australian legal services industry. 

DWF’s Managing Director (Australia), Principal Lawyer, and Head of Insurance in Australia, Damien van Brunschot, has been recognised in several categories including Insurance Law, Litigation, and Personal Injury Litigation. In addition, he has been named "Lawyer of the Year" for Personal Injury Litigation in Brisbane.
