Paul Sterling

Special Counsel

With over 30 years of litigation, personal injuries and insurance law experience, Paul has earned his reputation of being one of Queensland’s foremost litigation lawyers.

Paul’s success comes down to his expert knowledge (he’s been an accredited specialist in personal injuries law since 1999) and his excellent interpersonal and negotiation skills.

“I know that litigation can be a stressful time for a business. That’s why I help clients resolve disputes in a timely manner, and importantly take a proactive approach to identify and extinguish risks before a problem arises.”

Paul has built long lasting relationships with clients that he has assisted in all areas of litigation. Here are what some of those clients have to say about working with Paul…

“Paul, …I want to independently record that I was very happy with your work and especially your superb presentation of our case to the other side. It was as impressive as I expected.” Head of Legal, Local Government Organisation.

 “This is a really good result, injury to this fellow was quite nasty. This strategy has now produced a two out of two success rate. It means that the claim settled without having to go to a formal settlement conference, and the associated costs that go with that. Accolades again must go to our lawyer Paul Sterling.” Workers Compensation Manager, Steel Manufacturing and Supplying Company.

“Paul has demonstrated a focus on the early and commercially appropriate resolution of claims. However, he is not afraid to litigate if necessary.” Legal Services Manager, National Supermarket.
