About Us

We provide quality legal services in a wide range of insurance law, policy interpretation, litigation and dispute resolution. 

LMI Legal is a specialist insurance law firm offering legal services Australia-wide. We focus solely on insurance law because that is what we know and what we know well. Our lawyers offer expert advice and litigation services to all involved in the insurance industry, including insurance brokers, insurance companies, government authorities, commercial entities and individuals. 


We are committed to delivering the best results for our clients. We explain complex, technical legal issues clearly and concisely. We tailor our approach to resolving disputes according to our clients’ needs – whether that be pursing litigation or negotiating a timely, commercial settlement. Further, we understand that the cost of obtaining legal services can be a barrier for some clients. Accordingly, we offer flexible billing arrangements, such as “no win, no fee” or fixed fee agreements in appropriate circumstances.
