Practice head(s):

Ana Vermal


‘Ana Vermal shows an unmatched commitment to her clients and a knowledge and understanding of case law and the intricacies of each case that distinguishes Ana. She uses that knowledge to provide advice that I can depend upon. In my experience, it is this knowledge, commitment, responsiveness, and presence that sets her apart from her peers. I would rate the level of service among the very highest in the industry.’

‘Ana Vermal is more than outstanding. She is a 10 out of 10. I have used her for international cross-border arbitration. For depositions, she prepares clients beyond what they could typically expect. She prepares me and my colleagues for every possible scenario and each approach the other side may take. She also utilizes her extremely strong courtroom presence and strong cross examination to prove our case and present the facts in a very compelling manner.’

‘Ana is a great strategic thinker. She knows how to build the case, which arguments to make, when to make them, and how to handle procedural issues. She is among the very best at what she does!’

Main Areas of Practice

Labour and Employment:
Proskauer’s French labour lawyers advise European and US-based global companies in all areas of labour and employment, social security and social welfare, privacy and data protection and international labour relations. From counselling on day-to-day matters, to the most sophisticated employment aspects of transactions associated with business reorganisations, to managing complex cross-border trade union issues, to litigating before the High Court and Employment Tribunal, Proskauer encompasses one of the foremost practices in France. Each team’s specialisation is supported by access to the firm’s other areas of expertise, particularly in the area of mergers and acquisitions.

Corporate/Mergers and Acquisitions:
The firm’s Paris corporate/M&A team has extensive experience in French and multi-jurisdictional transactions that include mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, private equity investments, strategic alliances, and corporate restructurings. A hallmark of its practice in France is the firm’s longstanding relationships with leading global corporate entities and institutional investors spanning many years, and a particular talent for leading complex negotiations and providing advice at a strategic level. The team represents both overseas entities with substantial operations in France and French-based clients for their French or global matters. As part of Proskauer’s global private equity team, the Paris lawyers play an important role in transactional matters for clients in Europe.

International Arbitration:
The firm’s international arbitration group handles the full range of cross-border commercial disputes, including those involving mergers and acquisitions, investments, distribution contracts, licensing agreements, supply and manufacturing contracts, shareholder agreements and joint venture agreements. The partners in its group act as counsel and arbitrator in international arbitrations involving corporations from the US, Europe, Latin America and Asia and held all over the world and under all the major international arbitration rules, including in particular those of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the American Arbitration Association’s International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), the Japan Commercial Arbitration Association, and the Swiss Chambers of Commerce. The firm’s clients are in many different industries, notably pharmaceutical, sports, consumer products, construction, insurance and reinsurance, telecommunications, new media, energy, finance, lodging and gaming, and real estate. The firm is increasingly sought out by clients in these sectors as a result of its reputation for understanding their core business drivers and achieving successful outcomes.
