Ingrid has practised in insurance litigation since 2001. She has extensive experience in civil litigation across all Victorian Courts, in some Interstate Courts and Federal jurisdictions. Ingrid’s principal practice is in personal injury litigation and Coronial inquests, representing organisations across a range of industries and sectors as well as medical and allied health professionals. Other areas in which Ingrid has been involved include religious, disability and sex discrimination, allegations of historical abuse, aged care services, representation of individuals before professional registration boards and judicial review and administrative law.

Ingrid has acquired a sound knowledge of insurance matters including policy construction and has familiarity with liability, D&O, and professional indemnity policies as well as recovery proceedings.
