Following the publication of the Chambers Europe 2024 rankings earlier this month, the firm has received an impressive set of results in The Legal 500 EMEA 2024.

In the latest guide to leading law firms and lawyers across the region, Kennedys has received a total of 15 practice area rankings across the region. Supporting one of the firm's core strengths of insurance, we have been reconfirmed as Tier 1 for ‘Insurance’ in Israel and the UAE, with another top tier ranking for ‘Aviation’ in Belgium.

Kennedys is a great firm to work with on contentious and non-contentious matters. Very user friendly with a great depth of talent in the team.

The firm has been ranked across eight countries/regions in total (Belgium, Denmark, France, Ireland, Israel, Oman, Spain and the United Arab Emirates), with practice areas spanning across insurance, dispute resolution, transport, healthcare & life sciences, and construction.

The team at Kennedys never fails to provide excellent advice and effective strategies for the cost effective management of claims.
