We are delighted that Wotton + Kearney has again been recognised in both the Chambers and Partners Asia Pacific, and The Legal 500 Asia Pacific directories for our specialist insurance expertise alongside full service top tier and international law firms in both Australia and New Zealand. These rankings are developed based on independent research with clients in the form of in depth interviews across the globe.

W+K has been recognised as a Top Tier firm for Insurance in both Australia and New Zealand in The Legal 500 Asia Pacific, with Partners Cain Jackson (Melbourne), Antony Holden (Wellington) and Mathew Francis (Auckland) listed as leading individuals. We were pleased to also see Auckland Senior Associates Andrew Moore and Hugh King named as Next Generation Lawyers.
