Zurich Insurance Group (Zurich) has appointed global law firm Kennedys to its new legal claims panel to provide advice on the management of large and complex claims across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
We are very pleased to once again be a global partner of Dive in, the international festival for diversity and inclusion in insurance.
Kennedys has continued its growth in the United States with the opening of its first West Coast office, in San Francisco, and the addition of a four-partner team.
Kennedys and HKA recently co-hosted a webinar addressing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on construction industry projects in the Middle East.
The COVID-19 pandemic has heralded almost unprecedented levels of uncertainty in all industries. The construction industry is no different. Contracting parties are looking to their contracts to assess their rights - and potential obligations and liabilities – in the event of breach of contract.
We are delighted to confirm the promotion of thirteen lawyers to our partnership across practice areas including commercial, employment and healthcare, as well as specialist areas of insurance and liability that include cyber, property and construction, professional liability, travel, abuse and fraud. Eight of those promoted are based in the UK, with four in the US and one in Australia. Our worldwide partner count is now 264.
We are pleased to announce that the publication of the 2020 edition of The Legal 500 Europe, Middle East and Africa has seen us build on our 2019 success.
COVID-19: termination, suspension and pacing of construction works as remedies in the United Arab Emirates
The impact caused by the spread of COVID-19 and the resulting government actions has been (and continue to be) tremendous on the economy and the construction sector in particular.
We are pleased to announce that we have appointed Fernando Hurtado de Mendoza as a partner and Kodiak Semsch as a senior associate to our office in Lima as we continue to build a heavyweight practice in Peru. Fernando’s practice is split between aviation, corporate and insurance work. He moves from Rodrigo Elias y Medrano, the largest law firm in the country, and is immediately joined by associate Alejandra Vicuna. Kodiak, who will join the team later this month as the head of our Lima office’s litigation practice, is a dispute resolution specialist. He was formerly a litigation partner at Osterling Abogados.
