Papua New Guinea
Ashurst practises law in Papua New Guinea through Ashurst PNG. Ashurst PNG is a partnership formed in Papua New Guinea carrying on practice under the name "Ashurst" under licence from Ashurst LLP.
Ashurst Australia maintains professional indemnity insurance as required by each compulsory scheme operating in the jurisdictions in which the firm or its associates, including Ashurst PNG, practise. In addition to the compulsory insurance cover, the firm maintains a significant program of top up professional indemnity insurance which is structured in various layers. This has been obtained through the Australian and London insurance markets, details of which are confidential.
Together, the compulsory cover and the top-up layers of the firm's professional insurance provide cover which Ashurst Australia regards as appropriate for a firm such as ours and our associates. The firm's professional indemnity insurance program is confidential. Nevertheless Ashurst Australia understands that its clients and those of its associates must be reasonably satisfied as to the appropriateness of the level of cover effected by the firm. While the firm has strict protocols determined by its Board about disclosures of its professional indemnity coverage, Ashurst Australia will deal in good faith with you on this issue. If you require more information please contact Lisa Ritson, Partner, Ashurst Australia.
