Our People

Tom Cobban


Tom is a Director of Berrill & Watson Lawyers and has worked his whole career in superannuation and insurance claims. He only works for the individual or the insured person and never represents the insurance companies.

He is considered an expert in this field working primarily on TPD claims, income protection and general insurance claims.

Tom regularly travels around Australia providing advice and assistance to people in rural and regional locations across the country. He regularly visits clients in Victoria and  South Australia.

Tom has acted for people in many cases in both the Victorian and Federal Courts and has also advocated for people at the Financial Ombudsman Service and the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal.

Tom delivers many seminars and public talks for the MS Society in Victoria, the MS Society South Australia, Disability Rights Advocacy Service, PARAQUAD SA, the Migrant Resource Centre, financial counsellors from many organisations, and also for various mental health organisations including NEAMI and Spectrum.

He regularly volunteers at Social Security Rights Victoria and at the MS Society (Victoria) and is available to come and speak with your community group.

Tom is keen to ensure that expert legal assistance with superannuation and insurance claims for people in remote and regional areas is a priority. Whilst primarily working out of our Melbourne office, Tom spends a lot of time in regional Victoria and all areas of South Australia and is more than willing to come to you if a face to face meeting is what you need.
