On September 21 2016 International insurance specialist Law firm Kennedys celebrated the opening of its new Colombian office in Bogota with a client reception.
The event was attended by friends and clients, with many from the major Colombian insurers as well as brokers, adjusters, insurance services providers and other representatives of the Colombian Insurance Market.
Alex Guillamont, Head of the Latin American Practice, Mónica Tocarruncho, the partner who heads up Kennedys’ Botoga office, Andrea Londoño, Head of Litigation and the rest of the team welcomed the guests, thanking them for their loyal support.
The new Kennedys Colombian office in Bogotá is led by partners Mónica Tocarruncho Mantilla and Andrea Londoño Agudelo, and focuses on claims, coverage, corporate and regulatory law for the insurance industry.
Mónica joins from Royal & Sun Alliance (RSA) Colombia, where she was General Counsel. She advises on all areas of insurance claims and has extensive experience handling corporate, commercial and contract matters. In handling Suramericana’s acquisition of RSA Latin America’s operations, Mónica dealt with the largest insurance transaction in the region last year.
Andrea comes from an international law firm, where she was head of its Colombian insurance law practice. She advises on all areas of insurance claims, including financial lines, property and energy, and has experience of handling commercial matters. Andrea also brings insurance industry experience with her after working with broker Aon in London.
Mónica and Andrea are joined by insurance lawyers Catalina Botero and Gustavo Correa with experience in complex claims.
We at Kennedys would like to especially thank all of our clients and friends who joined us in bringing this consolidation of the Colombian operation to Bogota.
