Rhona McGrath


  • I joined BLM in September 2012 from Aviva insurance Europe SE where I managed the in-house legal team for 12 years.
  • While there, I acquired extensive experience in procedural and strategic defence of personal injuries litigation. In addition to management of a diverse portfolio of litigation files, I provided support to the pre-litigation teams in both guidance as to claim value and tactical approaches towards claims settlement.
  • In my role with Aviva I developed a keen understanding of the priorities and commercial drivers of an insurances business.
  • Prior to Aviva, I spent 10 varied years practising in defence litigation in Sydney, Australia. As well as personal injuries litigation, I advised on a wide range of subjects including policy indemnity, product liability, medical negligence, construction law, fidelity guarantee and recovery.
  • I have a Masters degree in commercial law and am an accredited mediator.
