He specialises in matters involving professional indemnity, general liability insurance, insurance and reinsurance, property insurance, and construction disputes.

Harvey has represented both domestic and international insurers in general, coverage, and indemnity disputes. He has a particular interest in alternative dispute resolution and litigation issues. He has appeared with and without counsel before the High Court of Australia, Federal Court of Australia, Queensland Court of Appeal, Supreme Court of Queensland, District Court of Queensland, and Magistrates Court of Queensland.
At CBP, he will tackle complex litigation issues, concentrating on professional indemnity, personal injury, financial lines, property damage, recovery and defence.
