Dispute resolution expert joins international firm’s partnership

Global insurance law firm Kennedys has announced the appointment of Jess Keating as a partner in the firm’s Auckland office.

Keating is a dispute resolution expert with more than 13 years of experience in insurance and civil litigation. She has represented national and international insurers on claims and recoveries ranging from small disputes to large multi-party claims. In her core practice she handles claims involving professional indemnity, public/product liability, directors’ and officers’ insurance, statutory liability, and recovery actions.

Keating graduated from the University of Auckland and was admitted as a barrister and solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand in 2000. Following this, she worked as a general and insurance litigation solicitor for six years in Auckland. After a brief stint in London in the litigation team of a US firm, she branched out into organisational development for six years with a focus on leadership. Keating then returned to law and has been with Kennedys since 2013.
