Kennedys pushing further into Latin America
Kennedys has announced its expansion into Chile and Colombia, as part of a broader push by the firm into Latin America this year, which also includes openings in Brazil in Peru. The firm’s Chile team, which will focus on insurance litigation and arbitration, includes individuals from Sateler Depolo Diemoz Abogados.
The firm has hired new partners Mónica Mantilla and Andrea Agudelo to lead its Colombian office, which will also focus on insurance claims. Mantilla comes to Kennedys from RSA Colombia, and Agudelo joins the firm from DLA Piper Martínez Neira, having previously worked in London at insurance broker Aon.
According to senior partner Nick Thomas, these openings are a key part of Kennedys’ strategy to expand the firm’s presence in Latin America.
