Kennedys has hired a team of motor and general insurance lawyers from Withers KhattarWong in Singapore. Partners Patrick Yeo and Lim Hui Ying are joined by an associate, paralegal and support staff. Yeo has been with KhattarWong since 1996, when he was admitted to the Singapore bar, and has been an equity partner since 2006. He became a senior equity partner after the firm’s merger to become Withers KhattarWong in 2015.

They also specialise in policy coverage and disputes and regularly advise and act for insurers for both contentious and non-contentious policy issues or disputes.
