On July 21 2016 International insurance specialist Law firm Kennedys celebrated the opening of its new Peruvian office in Lima with a client reception.
The event was attended by friends and clients, with many from the major Peruvian insurers as well as brokers, adjusters, insurance services providers, the insurance regulator and other representatives of the Peruvian Market.
Nick Thomas, Senior Worldwide Partner of Kennedys, Alex Guillamont, Head of the Latin American Practice, Marco River Noya, the partner who heads up Kennedys’ Lima office and the rest of the team welcomed the guests, thanking them for their loyal support.
The event took place at Huaca Pucllana, a unique archaeological place. In the fifth century of our era, the Lima valley inhabitants started the construction of that place. Two important reasons inspired the group of sacred priests, who were the governing rulers at that time. The first reason was their need to express their religious authority. The second reason was directly linked with the control of the hydrological resources stemmed from the water canal system, on the left bank of the Rimac river. Therefore, Pucllana was an important ceremonial and administrative location. Its magnificence was reflected by the configuration of a monumental architecture. It was built with small mud bricks wrought on a continuous base of blocks and remodeled during the three centuries of the Huaca existence.
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. Kennedys Peru provides advise in matters of insurance and reinsurance regulations, claims, and in local and international arbitration.
We at Kennedys would like to especially thank all of our clients and friends who joined us in bringing this Peruvian operation to Lima.
