International law firm Kennedys has announced the appointment of Daniel Scanlon as a partner in its insurance and litigation practice.

Mr Scanlon is joining the firm’s Dublin office from Maples & Calder, where he was a key member of its insurance disputes and commercial litigation group since 2011.

His focus will be on working with accountants and their insurers, working closely with insurance partners Noel Devins, who joined Kennedys from DWF Fishburns, and Ian Crotty, to further expand the firm’s local insurance offering.

Nick Thomas, senior partner at Kennedys, said: “We are delighted to have Daniel join our Dublin office. His expertise, experience and ambition will help us to grow our service in Ireland and beyond.

“Our Dublin office provides valuable advice and support to the many insurers headquartered in Ireland. Linked closely with our Belfast office, it’s an important jurisdiction and provides a link back to the London Market and our local offices in the UK.”

Mr Scanlon added: “I’m very pleased to be joining Kennedys and am looking forward to working with its many domestic and global insurance and financial services clients.

“There is a high degree of synergy between my client base and that of Kennedys. The firm’s international reputation was a big draw for me and my aim will be to help further develop its existing Irish market practice.”

Kennedys’ Dublin office was established in 2011 following a merger with a long-standing Dublin associate.

The office’s eight partners, including Mr Scanlon, are supported by 19 staff and provide a full range of dispute resolution services.
