Kennedys grows Australian insurance team

Global law firm Kennedys has added to its insurance practice in Australia with the appointment of three partners in Melbourne.

Nicole Wearne, Mark Attard and Ganga Narayanan joined this month, along with four special counsels, five lawyers and a support team of seven from Clyde & Co.

Ms Wearne is an insurance specialist and litigator; Mr Attard has more than 30 years’ experience advising Australian and London clients on professional indemnity and general insurance matters; and Ms Narayanan’s practices encompass general and life insurance claims and products.

“I am delighted to welcome Nicole, Mark, Ganga and their team to Kennedys,” Australian managing partner Jonathan Wyatt said.

“Their proven experience and long-standing market relationships add to the existing strength of our Melbourne office, and bolster our rapidly growing Australian insurance team’s ability to service local and London market clients across major insurance classes, particularly on the ground in Victoria.”
