UK firm Kennedys opens its doors in Miami

UK firm Kennedys continues its international expansion with the imminent launch of an office Miami. The Miami office will cater to Latin American and Caribbean clients, and will not practise US law. The office will focus on insurance claims and non-contentious issues. The office will be headed by insurance and reinsurance partner Alex Guillamont, and the team will also include associate Paula Jimenez and paralegal Karla Salguero. Senior partner Nick Thomas said: "Over the years we have been receiving increasing amounts of Latin American and Caribbean work into both London and Madrid, so it made sense for us to have someone in the same time zone to respond and provide a service quickly.
