Clients now can take advantage of the unique set of skills that Daniel brings saving time and money when dealing with their claims or regulatory issues.”
Daniel states: “I’m excited to join Kennedys’ Miami office as Kennedys always offers pioneer solutions to its clients; for instance, Kennedys was the first international insurance law firm to open a boutique office in Miami for Latin America a few years ago. To me this is a great responsibility and an excellent opportunity to offer Kennedys’ clients experience dealing locally with Cuban and Caribbean matters and globally in London”.
Kennedys’ America’s office is based in Miami to help international insurers and reinsurers manage claims and non-contentious issues across the region. The dedicated multilingual team is highly experienced in supporting our clients, and we also draw on the skills and expertise of Kennedys globally.
