Our firm

Kennedys Chudleigh Ltd., the associated Bermuda office of the international litigation and insurance firm, Kennedys, is one of the leading law firms in Bermuda. Our partners have over twenty years’ experience advising clients on some of the largest and most complex legal issues facing insurers, reinsurers, corporate organisations, and financial and professional service providers.

Members of our Bermuda-based team have in-depth international and local experience, having practiced both 'onshore' and 'offshore' for many years, both as barristers and advocates, and as solicitors and attorneys.

Our global reach, local and international experience, and deep sector knowledge provide our Bermuda-based lawyers with an extensive understanding of the global and local issues facing our clients.

Our practice

Our specialist insurance and reinsurance practice advises clients on all classes of business, including general liability (particularly the “Bermuda Form”), professional liability, directors' and officers' liability, financial institutions, product liability, Industry Loss Warranties, Insurance Linked Securities, captive insurance programmes, property, life insurance and other classes of long-term business, environmental liability, construction, marine and cargo, personal accident, life insurance, workers compensation, and motor liability.

We offer a “one stop” service for Bermuda-related arbitration work, including arbitrations seated or held in Bermuda, London, Toronto and elsewhere, and we are in a unique position to offer clients access to our global network and highly specialist insurance teams in London, New York, and in every other Kennedys office throughout North America, Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific.

Our team also offers unique specialist expertise advising and acting on Offshore Professional Risks, involving professional negligence claims in offshore jurisdictions relating to directors, officers, trustees, fiduciaries, corporate service providers, lawyers, accountants, fund administrators, auditors, insolvency practitioners, financial institutions, custodians, investment managers, insurance brokers, architects, building professionals, and medical professionals.

We advise and represent corporate clients on a wide range of commercial disputes, both in litigation and in arbitration, as well as on insolvency and restructuring matters, trusts disputes, and regulatory issues.

Our Bermuda-based lawyers have appeared as Leading Counsel or Counsel in some of the largest and most complex pieces of commercial and trusts litigation before the Supreme Court of Bermuda in the past ten years, as well as conducting appeals before the Court of Appeal for Bermuda and the Privy Council in London.

We have particular experience of dealing with urgent applications for injunctive relief, including freezing injunctions, anti-suit injunctions, and provisional liquidation appointments. We are also regularly involved in asset tracing and asset recovery proceedings, contested winding up petitions, minority shareholder petitions and corporate governance disputes, as well as applications for the enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitration awards, and for the production of evidence for use in foreign proceedings

Our team also has considerable experience advising clients on corporate transactions and commercial matters including commercial contracts, ownership agreements and corporate structuring, mergers and acquisitions, regulatory and compliance matters, securities offerings, and employment law.
