About Us


IDP Lawyers is an independent law firm located in Melbourne providing legal advice and expertise in managing the defence of accident compensation disputes, primarily for WorkSafe Victoria, and medical law disputes on behalf of a medical indemnity insurer.


Whilst IDP Lawyers was only established in March 2014 it is built upon a long history of its partners and staff acting for their key clients. The partners seized the opportunity to build a boutique law firm based on their complementary experience and expertise to create a team of almost fifty people.

Our focus allows IDP Lawyers to devote the whole of the firm’s resources to advancing our already deep understanding of our chosen field of practice as the responsibilities are considerable.

In furtherance of the values of WorkSafe Victoria, the optimal management of claims and legal processes are critical in ensuring the fairness and viability of the common law and statutory schemes in Victoria.

Our medical law team acts for medical practitioners in proceedings involving allegations of medical negligence, at coronial inquests and before AHPRA.
