About Kennedys

Kennedys is a global law firm with expertise in dispute resolution and advisory services. With over 2,200 people worldwide across 43 offices in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Asia Pacific and America we have some of the most respected legal minds in their field.

Our lawyers handle both contentious and non-contentious matters, and provide a range of specialist legal services, for many industry sectors but we have particular expertise in litigation and dispute resolution, especially in defending insurance and liability claims.

We’re a fresh-thinking firm, and we’re not afraid to bring challenging new perspectives to the table way beyond the traditional realm of legal services. We empower our clients with a diverse range of ideas, tools and technology to make their lives easier, as well as delivering exceptional results, every time.

Working at Kennedys is exciting, fast paced and varied. We recognise that it is important for you to have a work life balance that allows you the flexibility to live your life. This is possible with our hybrid working policy which will allow you, unless your role requires you to be office based, to enjoy a split of home and office working. We also have a “dress for your day” dress code encouraging you to dress casually whenever possible.

To help us develop our distinct culture and as part of our commitment to promoting equality and diversity we have created global and regional diversity and inclusion employee groups. The groups meet regularly to share ideas, discuss new initiatives and advise on what more we could be doing. 

Our corporate social responsibility strategy and commitments are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which provide us with the framework that can drive action and deliver on our CSR goals. In our quest to create a sense of shared purpose, we actively encourage colleagues to join our growing network of CSR champions to take part in events such as sporting fundraisers, virtual hackathons and pro bono initiatives to champion a better future for our people, our clients and our planet.
