Kennedys partners and senior staff listed in Best Lawyers Australia and Best Lawyers Ones to Watch 2023
Congratulations to the 15 Kennedys lawyers recognised by their peers in the 2023 edition of Best Lawyers in Australia and the inaugural edition of Best Lawyers 'Ones to Watch', both published on 21 April 2022.
In this publication, Kennedys experts answer a series of questions relating to Australian Insurance and Reinsurance Laws and Regulations and identify common issues, including regulatory authorities and procedures, (re)insurance claims, litigation and arbitration.
Our global liability and defence group brief, Navigating the global liability defence agenda, was created with our clients in mind. With our legal footprint spanning across 24 countries, our lawyers have first-hand knowledge of global issues impacting our clients. We wanted to provide a snapshot of interesting legal issues we are seeing and share some takeaways we expect will resonate cross jurisdictionally.
As urban populations grow, apartment buildings have changed skylines worldwide. Ownership of these complexes in Australia is predominantly subdivided under the “strata title” system. As the number of strata developments grows, we have seen a corresponding rise in personal injury cases brought by claimants who sustained injury on those properties. This article outlines some key considerations for insurers and insureds who may be subject to those claims.
Congratulations to the 12 Kennedys lawyers that have been recognised in the Best Lawyers in Australia 2022 edition, with our lawyers achieving 15 individual recognitions in total.
Kennedys’ global footprint means we are uniquely placed to review the impact of COVID-19 in the legal casualty market, and on the functioning of court systems in our different jurisdictions.
Following two years of solid growth, Kennedys in Australia is pleased to announce that we have moved to new premises in Melbourne Central Tower.
We are pleased to announce that we are continuing our strategic growth, expanding our operations in Australia with the addition of a new office in Melbourne and a new team led by lateral hire partner, Michael Kavanagh.
