Kennedys Strengthens Aviation Team in Singapore

Kennedys has further bolstered its aviation team in Singapore with the designation of Anita Quy as Head of Aviation, Asia Pacific (APAC), and the addition of Tristan Thompson as a new partner.

Joining the firm in 2014, Anita has specialised in the aviation sector for more than 20 years, and is highly respected across APAC and the London Market. She advises a range of clients, including insurers, airlines, general aviation operators, regulators, ground handlers and maintenance organisations. 

Anita has been engaged as lead counsel in a number of cases involving catastrophic losses and regularly handles complex, high-value work, such as hull subrogation claims. She also has extensive dispute resolution experience in cross-border litigation, and regularly advises on non-contentious issues, such as contractual liability, risk management and regulatory matters. 

She takes over the role following the departure of Peng Lim, who has moved in-house to long-standing Kennedys’ client, Liberty Specialty Markets, as Head of Aviation Claims.

Anita will work alongside new partner, Tristan Thompson, who recently joined the firm from DLA Piper, where he spent the last three years principally working on complex aviation and aerospace product liability claims and hull subrogation claims. Prior to that, Tristan spent eight years at Clyde & Co, where he trained and qualified into their aviation team.

An English qualified lawyer, Tristan specialises in handling contentious aviation and aerospace matters on behalf of operators and their (re)insurers across multi-jurisdictions. His experience includes dealing with major airline and helicopter losses, attritional claims, coverage issues and pursuing recovery actions for (re)insurers and insureds.
