With this opening, Kennedys becomes the first International Law Firm specialized in insurance and reinsurance to have its own office in Peru.
After being the first to open a regional hub for Latin America and The Caribbean in Miami six years ago, Kennedys continues to be the leader in Latin America by being the first International Law Firm to open its own branch in Lima, Peru.
Kennedys Peru is directed by the renowned Peruvian Insurance lawyer Marco Rivera Noya and by senior associate Jorge Mere, who transferred from Kennedys Miami to perform essential liaison tasks. The office team is also formed by the experienced Attorneys Noriko Hasegawa and Alonso Barreda and it counts with the support from all the regional team of Miami and from the global team coordinated from London.
Nick Thomas, Senior Worldwide Partner of Kennedys, states on this subject: “Our clients from around the world greatly value our international experience in major claims and the combination of our global and local knowledge. Kennedys is particularly recognized in complex claims that require a high specialization and that have an international component that requires specialized knowledge in diverse jurisdictions.”
Alex Guillamont, Head of the Latin American Practice states “After several decades of providing legal advice from London, Madrid and Miami the time has come to take the next step and be even closer to our clients to optimize the quality of our services. Marco and his team offer the Peruvian market a unique knowledge of the local jurisdiction that our clients greatly value. With this new opening we continue our philosophy of being present whenever and wherever we are needed.”
Marco Rivera Noya, Director of Kennedys Peru states: “I’m very motivated with this new stage of professional growth. After many years of working in the Peruvian market from local Firms, the moment has come to take the leap to an International Law Firm and lead a project of unique characteristics in the Peruvian market.”
After the opening of the new office in Peru and of the development of the business unit in the United States, Kennedys continues with its expansion plan in America and will announce in the following months, the opening of new offices in the region and other parts of the world. At this time Kennedys has many offices around the world, multiple associated offices and a team of 1.450 professionals.
