Kennedys increases footprint in Chile with six-strong team

We are very pleased to announce that we have boosted our offering in Chile by welcoming Chilean law firm Peralta & Gutiérrez into our Santiago office. The move consolidates our leading advisory and litigation teams locally.

Headed by Ricardo Peralta and José Antonio Gutierrez, who join us as Of Counsel and Partner respectively, the team comprises two lawyers (Jorge Canales, Senior Associate and Salvador Gutiérrez, Junior Associate) and two support staff. 

The team acts for Chile’s largest insurers and reinsurers, as well as international insurers, reinsurers and corporates. Their arrival will complement our existing team in Santiago, which specialises in litigation and arbitration, with a particular focus on insurance claims and coverage advice; and takes the total headcount of the office to 18.

Our Santiago-based office regularly handles cases involving directors’ and officers’ liability, errors and omissions, life and health, property and public liability claims. It also provides e-commerce and consumer law, real estate and corporate finance advice.
