Ecuadorian firm Tobar ZVS and multinational firm Kennedys have entered into a strategic alliance to strengthen their insurance practice in the Americas. The alliance will uniquely position Tobar ZVS and Kennedys to provide high-quality legal services to clients within Ecuador and around the world. Both firms will maintain their independence.

The collaboration will enable Kennedys to foster its regional expansion, adding an additional associate office to its already solid network. Tobar ZVS will widen its suite of products and solutions to local clients looking to expand globally as well as international clientele with cross-border needs.

“Forming an association with Kennedys strengthens our insurance practice and our ability to service our international clientele. We are looking forward to combining our expertise with the Kennedys team to serve the many shared clients we have and expand our global reach.” Said Managing Partner Bernardo Tobar.

Founded in 1993, Tobar ZVS is a full-service corporate law firm advising national and international clients on corporate, M&A, antitrust and competition, insurance, data protection, compliance, intellectual property, energy, natural resources, dispute resolution, tax, finance, fintech and environmental, amongst the key practice areas.

Tobar ZVS’s insurance practice is led by Partner René de Sola who commented “The strategic alliance with Kennedys enhances both firms’ depth and reach in key business sectors, such as insurance, and unlocks access to expert local knowledge. We couldn’t have asked for a better partner”

Kennedys’ Miami office serves as the hub for the firm’s Latin American presence. Kennedys has the largest reach of any insurance law firm with offices in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru, and six associate offices in Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Panama Puerto Rico, and recently Bolivia and Ecuador.

Anna Weiss, regional managing partner for LATAM and Caribbean at Kennedys, says: “There are excellent synergies between both firms, and I am delighted we have been able to formalise the association with Tobar ZVS.”

Alex Guillamont, partner at Kennedys, says: “We continue our expansion in the region with new associate offices, with whom we have worked and built a solid relationship serving mutual clients and have a proven record of success after working together for several years.”
