Ashleigh C. Bennett is a litigation associate in Greenberg Traurig’s West Palm Beach office. Ashleigh focuses her practice on complex commercial, products liability, and real estate litigation in federal and state courts and in arbitrations. She represents large institutional clients, high-net-worth individuals, and a variety of businesses in matters involving contract disputes, fraud, unfair trade practices, violations of various state and federal statutes, and breach of fiduciary duty claims. Ashleigh also has experience in representing investment banks, broker-dealers, and registered representatives in securities litigation and employment disputes.
Her experience spans all aspects of litigation, including first-chairing and second-chairing trials, development of litigation strategies, case management, managing e-discovery, preparing fact and expert witnesses for deposition and trial, taking and defending depositions, selecting and managing trial experts, drafting and arguing discovery, dispositive, and pre-trial motions, negotiating and drafting settlement agreements, handling mediations, and trial practice. As a trial lawyer, Ashleigh is willing to try cases where the client’s interests call for trial but has also resolved and narrowed litigation before trial.
Prior to joining the firm, Ashleigh worked as an associate at a boutique litigation law firm where she litigated matters involving construction defects, insurance coverage, partnership disputes, shareholder derivative actions, and providing general counsel services with respect to compliance with laws and regulations. During law school, Ashleigh served as a student attorney in the Vanderbilt Community Enterprise Clinic. In that role, she advised small businesses on entity formation, governance, and federal income tax issues. Prior to law school, Ashleigh worked at a boutique law firm where she handled real estate closings and assisted with related business law matters.
