More about Brendan

Brendan specialises in insurance-related litigation as well as non-contentious insurance and reinsurance matters.

Brendan has acted on a wide range of insurance and reinsurance matters for Australian-based and international clients including insurance events, in Australia and overseas, such as flooding, storm, earthquake, fire and explosion events, electricity supply issues and machinery break-downs as well as high value class action litigation, public and product liability and subrogation claims.

Prior to joining Holman Fenwick Willan in January 2009, Brendan practised for seven years in New Zealand for a Trans-Tasman law firm in the areas of professional indemnity, statutory liability and public and product liability insurance and general and commercial litigation. Brendan has also previously worked in London as part of an insurance and reinsurance dispute resolution team defending major international arbitration claims against a United States-based reinsurer.

Brendan has been recognised by Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2018 as a Next Generation Lawyer in Australia for Insurance. The publication states that "Brendan McCashin has strong experience in litigation and non-contentious insurance work and is also a key contact in Melbourne".

Brendan is dual qualified in Australia and New Zealand.


The Melbourne office is widely recognised as being among Australia’s most distinguished maritime, trade, energy and insurance law practices.

The office handles a broad range of contentious and non-contentious work for international marine and insurance industry clients, multi-national and local mining and oil and gas companies, agricultural commodities producers and traders, financial institutions, port and terminal operators and logistics services providers, and construction contractors.
