Mark Chudleigh


Mark is the lead partner of our Bermuda office and specialises in commercial litigation that involves financial services, insurance and private client sectors. He is admitted as both a barrister and an attorney in Bermuda and England and Wales.

He maintains an international practice that focuses on commercial litigation and arbitration involving the financial services, insurance and private client sectors. He frequently represents clients on multi-jurisdictional matters, particularly involving the United States, having been admitted in the State of California in 1998. After practicing at two leading firms in London he established the Bermuda law firm, now known as Kennedys Chudleigh, in 2006

His commercial litigation practice includes corporate, insolvency, trusts and insurance matters involving commercial entities in Bermuda, other British Overseas Territories, the United States, Europe and Asia, including financial institutions, hedge funds, fund managers and administrators, captive managers, trust companies, accountants and law firms.

Mark also oversees an insurance practice from the Bermuda office, which covers all classes of business, including general liability (particularly the “Bermuda Form”), professional liability, directors’ and officers’ liability, financial institutions, product liability, industry loss warranties and financial reinsurance, property (including property catastrophe reinsurance), environmental liability, construction, marine, cargo, satellites and space, motor, personal accident and workers compensation.

In addition to his litigation practice, Mark provides counselling on complex insurance and reinsurance claims. He also advises on regulatory issues affecting the insurance industry, particularly in relation to the Bermuda market. Mark has also acted as an expert witness on issues of Bermuda law in the context of US court and arbitration proceedings.

Mark is described as having “…a broad insurance and reinsurance practice that sees him acting on behalf of some of the industry's most prominent companies…Mark showed tremendous leadership, moving things along, corralling other lawyers and not adding expense to the matter.” (Chambers Global 2017)
