Kemsley's focus is in the area of claims management of specialty and casualty insurance, including directors' and officers' liability, venture capital, professional indemnity for financial institutions and advisors, fidelity and crime, employment practices, kidnap and ransom, general liability, product liability and product recall. His practice incorporates advice to insurers, reinsurers, captive insurers, global insurers, brokers and corporates on coverage issues, claims management, coverage reviews and insurance risk management.

Kemsley spent approximately 18 years at the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies as the Directors' and Officers' Liability Casualty Technical Claims Manager for the Asia Pacific zone. He has been involved in the management of many high profile litigated directors' and officers' and casualty claims in Australia and Asia. Kemsley's claims management experience includes US shareholder and product liability class actions. His former role also includes the training and education of cedant insurers within the Asia Pacific zone on the specialty class of insurance products.

Kemsley has recently co-authored a chapter entitled "Product Liability Insurance" in the third edition of Product Liability in the Asia Pacific published by The Federation Press in December 2009. He has also authored and presented on other insurance related topics over the past 18 years, including "Claims Best Practices", "Claims Management - A team player", "Effective Management of US Securities Class Action Proceedings and the Role of the Regulator in Asia".
