About Us

Who We Are

LMI Legal is a specialist insurance law firm offering legal services Australia-wide. We focus on insurance law because that is what we know and what we know well.


LMI Legal was started by Prof. Allan Manning, the managing director of LMI Group, and Peter O’Brien, the founding principal solicitor.


Since its inception in 2013, LMI Legal has grown to become the well respected and formidable insurance litigation firm that it is today. LMI Legal acts on behalf of clients in every state and territory, and across all state and federal jurisdictions

What We Do

Our lawyers offer expert advice and litigation and dispute resolution services to all involved in the insurance industry, including insureds, insurance brokers, insurance companies, government authorities, commercial entities, and individuals.

Our Commitment to Our Clients

We pride ourselves on being hands on, approachable, and client-centric. We are committed to ensuring that our clients know they are supported throughout the dispute resolution process in what is often a stressful experience riddled with uncertainty.


We work alongside our clients and develop our practices to ensure that legal services of the highest quality are provided. 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 in appropriate circumstances.
