Kennedys

Offering 'deep industry knowledge, practical advice and strategic planning', Kennedys 'relentlessly supports the right solutions for clients and takes a long-term view of its relationships'. After establishing a strong foothold in the US in 2017 via a merger with insurance firm Carroll McNulty & Kull and a series of hires from the now-defunct Sedgwick, the insurance team now handles international environmental catastrophe claims, asbestos cases, construction defects, personal injury and sexual assault and D&O liability.  'Unparalleled insurance counsel, litigator and negotiator' Christopher Carroll's is advising Columbia Casualty Company on one of the first significant examples of litigation in the emerging field of cyber risk coverage, while in another highlight, John LeBarbera acted for The Riverstone Group and lead excess insurer TIG Insurance Company in a national lawsuit initiated by BogWarner, which faces thousands of asbestos bodily injury claims. Kristin Gallagher reached a successful result for client First Mercury Insurance Company in its declaratory judgment action in order to dismiss payment obligation for an underlying settlement in a Telephone Consumer Protection Act litigation. Clients also recommend 'terrific attorneys' Meg Catalano and Heather Simpson, who 'seek solutions that fit the clients' unique circumstances rather than a general strategy'. All mentioned partners sit in Basking Ridge, NJ, except Chicago-based LeBarbera.
