Robust and Comprehensive Approach

Our Health Care Team comprises of senior practitioners with a proven track record of achieving superior results in a timely manner. Our senior lawyers directly manage and take responsibility for achieving client outcomes. All matters are thoroughly investigated and prepared to ensure that the optimal evidence is available. As well as traditional litigation expertise, our senior lawyers are all experienced negotiators who effectively engage in alternative dispute resolutions to achieve early and cost effective outcomes.

We communicate all developments to our health care clients as they occur and ensure our clients are kept fully up to date on their matters. We ensure that our senior lawyers are always available and accessible.

Our Experience working with State and Federal Health Bodies

In addition to our health law experience, we bring a broader skill set to our health and aged care practice. In particular, we have significant experience and expertise acting for statutory authorities and government departments, which has enabled our Partners to build practices which are flexible to their needs and demands, and alive to the policy imperatives. In acting for statutory authorities and government bodies we always adhere to model litigant principles.

Medico-Legal Claims

Kaden Boriss represents public and private hospitals in defending medico-legal claims. Our Partners also have expertise representing medical defence organisations and self-insured health practitioners. Our focus in medico-legal claims is to identify issues early and develop a strategic plan from the outset including the early and appropriate use of expert witnesses. In acting for hospitals and health practitioners, we provide comprehensive advice, clear analysis of the relevant issues and timeframes for resolution.

Primary Allied and Community Health Care, Aged Care and Disability Care

Kaden Boriss also acts for allied health bodies, aged care and disability service providers in the defence of workers' compensation claims, and in the provision of employment and industrial relations advice.
