Jim Tealby


Jim Tealby is a Partner of the firm, and has been working in the field of statutory personal injuries compensation in South East Queensland since 1994.

Jim has extensive experience in the legal industry. He has worked at BTL since January 2007.
Jim heads a team of lawyers, working primarily in the management of workers’ compensation common law claims and statutory claims.

Prior to joining BTL, he has worked in a number of smaller, larger and even a number of national firms. That work experience has given him valuable perspective on the management of statutory personal injury claims in the Queensland market.

While working almost exclusively for sophisticated insurer clients over the last 18 years or so, the focus of work undertaken at BTL enables Jim to communicate, explain and negotiate claims involving a wide variety of employers and industry groups.

That negotiation experience has recently led him to obtain national accreditation as a mediator.
