We provide advisory services to the industry, including coverage advice regarding exposures, and assist claims handlers in managing and defending claims.

Our experienced team handles volume cases, complex advice and class actions. Our expertise includes:

  • Litigation defence for (re)insurers before the Mexican insurance authorities and the federal and state courts
  • Coverage advice across the full range of (re)insurance products lines
  • Drafting clauses and policies
  • Subrogation
  • Regulatory advice.

Kennedys Mexico handles claims and litigation defence across all insurance risks, such as general liability, construction, property and energy, aviation, marine, financial lines including directors and officers, errors and omissions and professional indemnity, life and health, and medical malpractice.

We work closely with our network of Latin American offices and our Miami regional hub for the Americas. In addition we have an extensive network across Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East. We work together to provide a seamless legal service in Latin America and beyond.

Kennedys was awarded ‘Latin American Law Firm of the Year’ in the Reactions Latin American Insurance and Reinsurance Awards 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Our approach

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

Recommendations - not just options
Strategy and tactics - not just legal view in a vacuum
Plain language - not just legalese, clauses and caveats
We call this: Legal advice in black and white.
