About us     Read this page in French here.

Having grown through years of activity prior to the creation of Kennedys’ Paris office, the Paris team has a long-established reputation as one of Paris’s leading commercial litigation practices and is particularly well-known for its expertise in (re)insurance, liability and complex cross-border disputes.

The team provides specialist litigation advice, grounded in a deep understanding of the global insurance markets and prides itself on articulating sophisticated legal and technical arguments in ways which make them both straightforward and relevant to our clients’ needs.

The Paris office advises on all aspects of liability and insurance law and litigation, including aviation, banking and finance, casualty, commercial disputes, construction, environment, financial lines, fraud, industrial risks, life and health, professional indemnity, property, pharmaceutical, product, public and directors’ and officers’ liability.

It is recognized for its ability to handle large, multi-party disputes, mass tort litigations and complex technical matters and often works within or manages large teams, created on a case-by-case basis and constituted of lawyers and specialists from other fields (engineers, doctors, accountants, traders, architects…), so as to identify and execute the best possible strategy to achieve a successful outcome for our clients.

Finally, the Paris office is perfectly-placed to operate in a global environment, as our lawyers – who work across linguistic, legal and cultural barriers on a daily basis – have all either studied or worked abroad (in the US, the UK, Canada, Australia, Spain etc.) and speak a broad range of languages (English, Spanish, German and Italian). The team works closely with our network of offices in Europe, Asia Pacific, the Americas and the Middle East, thereby ensuring that Kennedys’ clients receive seamless legal services throughout Europe and beyond.
