About us

Kennedys' Sydney office specialises in insurance law litigation and reputational risks. We deliver expert legal advice and representation throughout Australia and the region. Clients include:

  • Australian and international insurers and reinsurers
  • Leading businesses in the Asia Pacific region - transnational corporates, major construction companies, private healthcare facilities, national sporting bodies
  • High profile individuals and household-name organisations

Our specialist legal services span insurance and reinsurance, construction, commerce, employment, financial services, healthcare, sport and media, reputation and brand management, with a particular focus on dispute resolution and litigation.

Kennedys Sydney has quickly grown to 9 partners and our team of 25 lawyers brings a wealth of private practice and in-house counsel experience gained both in Australia and internationally.

We are regarded as leaders, not just because we have some of the most respected legal minds in their fields, but because we know it's important to be practical, supportive, commercial and approachable. We give clear legal advice.

Answers - not just more questions
Recommendations - not just options
Strategy and tactics - not just a legal view in a vacuum
Clear English - not legalese, clauses and caveats.

We call this: Legal advice in black and white.
