The HBA Way


HBA Legal is an evolved provider of legal services to the insurance industry, in Australia and overseas.

We partner with underwriters, brokers, insurers, insureds, and large self-insured companies.  We are one of Australia’s leading defendant-only legal practices, forging the way in creative problem solving and commercially oriented solutions.


The HBA Way

We deliver our difference through the HBA Way, built around our core values.

We work in a partnership model that starts with listening. We’ll understand your goals and drivers, and work with you to achieve them.

We spend time talking with all parties from the outset, including insureds and brokers. We’re sensitive to their needs and concerns.

We work flexibly, creating the best team for you, and minimising costs through smart fee-models and use of our outsourcing people, Pillion.

We have friendly people who simplify things and give it to you straight. We use plain English and you’ll feel confident in our clear advice.




Our unique offering

HBA Legal is part of the HBA Group, also comprising claims management business Paratus, and outsourcing provider Pillion.  Working as a united force, sharing resources,  knowledge and talent, we are uniquely placed to offer seamless solutions and greatly reduced costs.

Paratus is the only business in Australia offering a cradle to grave claims management solution that integrates legal advice, risk management and leading edge claims management.  HBA Legal provides that legal and risk advice, with fixed fee litigation services when needed.

Through our outsourcing provider Pillion, we keep clients’ admin and paralegal costs down, meaning HBA is highly competitive on fees.  We remain an industry leader in alternate pricing models, including fixed fees.
