Isadora Talamo

Isadora Talamo is a qualified lawyer in Brazil, based in Kennedys’ London office, and registered with the Brazilian Lawyers Association since 2008. She started her career in the insurance market in Brazil in 2007, and over the years has acted as an in-house lawyer and reinsurance broker. In 2010 she moved to London to strengthen her experience with international reinsurers.

She represents reinsurers that have interest and retain business in Latin America, and her focus is financial lines and cyber claims, although she is also dealing with other lines of insurance. The matters that she deals with tend to be complex and often have cross-border elements.
