Kennedys 'has an intelligent team of lawyers, solid technical knowledge and emotional intelligence, which makes it easy to deal with them'. The practice is part of the wider network of global law firm Kennedys and is well known for its advice on directors’ and officers’ liability, errors and omissions, life and health insurance, property and public-liability claims, as well as insurance regulation, claims management and defence, policy wordings, coverage, and corporate insurance. Clients include Chubb de Chile Compañía de Seguros Generales, Southbridge Compania de Seguros Generales and HDI Seguros; recent work includes advising insured party Parque Arauco on the structure of it's insurance program, covering assets across Chile, Colombia and Peru valued at $2bn; and acting for the reinsurers on a claim arising out of a $25m securities theft. The Santiago office's June 2019 absorbtion of local boutique Peralta, Gutierrez y Asociados saw the arrival of Jose Antonio Gutierrez -who becomes practice co-head alongside managing partner Mario Diemoz ('profound knowledge of the insurance industry')- and senior market figure Ricardo Peralta V , a 50-year veteran of the sector who is now of counsel. The team, which could already count on the strength of the highly-regarded Radoslav Depolo and Gian Carlo Lorenzini (corporate and litigation heads, respectively), has also been strengthened at the senior associate level: following the arrival of Rodrigo Hayvard from Zurich Insurance Group in May 2018, the above merger also saw the incorporation of Jorge Canales, giving the team an impressive second-tier.
