Ann Benzimra, Partner, Dispute Resolution
I am a leading expert in Dispute Resolution with over twenty years’ experience of advising clients on the resolution of a broad range of disputes, representing both large corporates and SMEs.
I deal with complex negotiations, mediations and all aspects of court proceedings - including arbitration - and regularly represent clients in urgent court applications including injunctions, whether defending or pursuing them.
I have advised clients in more than 200 mediations as well as numerous arbitrations, and also regularly represent clients on issues regarding jurisdiction and applicable laws cross-border.
I regularly advise clients within the IT sector, notably on complex software agreements (both supplier and user). I also frequently represent clients in complex fraud actions and disputes involving contractual interpretation. My practical approach means that I regularly achieve early resolution of significant disputes and problems for my clients.
I am currently representing a global software company in defending a potential multi-million pound claim involving complex issues around jurisdiction (whether court proceedings or arbitration) and critical timing in relation to delivery of software.
I speak French fluently, German proficiently and have a good level of Spanish.
In my spare time I enjoy following motor racing, travel and going to the gym.
