Kennedys has operated in Australia since 2006. Insurance matters and commercial disputes are our core business and we are recognised as leading advisers in all jurisdictions.

In insurance, Kennedys has forged a reputation equally for expertise in highly technical and complex claims, and for our efficient management of low-value claims. Our people have extensive experience across multiple lines of insurance work, with a particular depth of expertise in professional indemnity, financial institutions, medical malpractice, casualty, directors’ and officers’ (D & O), public and product liability, property and construction, energy, cyber, marine, transport and employment.

Our diverse client base includes domestic and international insurers and reinsurers, underwriters, Lloyd’s syndicates, global composites, captive insurance companies and self-insureds.

Our commercial practice includes expertise in a wide range of disputes and advisory work, including matters of defamation and reputational risk, employment law, regulatory compliance, IT and data privacy. We frequently act for high-profile private clients, corporates and SMEs in complex, sensitive matters and litigation.

Drawing on the extensive resources and expertise of Kennedys’ global network, particularly across the Asia Pacific, we provide seamless service to our clients when and where they need us.
