Rebecca Hosking

Rebecca, a qualified mediator, is passionate about the cost effective resolution of disputes.

For more than 15 years, Rebecca has supported insurers and in-house risk or claims specialists on litigation and dispute resolution strategies for professional indemnity and general liability claims – defending large scale litigation, general liability claims and small claim matters for construction companies and other construction sector professionals, shopping centre managers, and managers and occupiers of commercial premises.

If you are an insurance claims professional or an in-house risk or claims specialist, Rebecca would be delighted to support you to enhance the efficiency of your insurance claims and disputes – both litigated and un-litigated – and to advise on policy interpretation plus coverage disputes.


Rebecca’s experience includes advising:

  • A life insurer in respect of the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking Superannuation and Financial Services Industry;
  • Greg McBride on the Inquest into the death of Braxton Slager (findings: 27 March 2018);
  • The respondent on the Health Care Complaints Commission v Denshire (also known as Lowick) [2018] NSWCATOD 19; and
  • Australand on Erect Safe Scaffolding in Erect Safe Scaffolding (Australia) Pty Limited v Sutton [2008] NSWCA 114. This case changed the landscape in respect of interpretation of contractual indemnity clauses.

As a skilled negotiator only the “just” cases are taken to judgment. This is evidenced in the decisions in which Rebecca’s client has received a judgment in its favour including:

  • Lets Go Adventures Pty Ltd v Barrett [2017] NSWCA 243; and
  • Schneider v AMP Capital Investors Ltd; Schneider v Kent Street Pty Ltd; AMP Office & Industrial Pty Ltd v AMP Capital Investors Ltd [2016] NSWSC 333.
