Tim Benham-Mirando


Year of Call: 2019

Practice Overview

Tim joined Chambers as a tenant in October 2020 following the successful completion of his pupillage under the supervision of Dan McCourt Fritz, Gareth Tilley, Matthew Morrison and Thomas Elias. He is developing a broad commercial chancery practice in line with Chambers’ profile.

During pupillage, Tim worked on cases across Chambers’ core practice areas, with particular experience in commercial litigation, company law and civil fraud.

Tim read law at the University of Oxford where he graduated with a first class degree (ranking fifth in his year) and a Distinction on the BCL. He previously taught Trusts and Land Law at the University of Oxford. He was awarded the Lord Mansfield scholarship by Lincoln’s Inn (the Inn’s top award).

Before coming to the Bar, Tim worked in the international arbitration group at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, a leading US law firm. During his time at the firm, he worked on a number of arbitrations for corporate clients from a range of industries, including energy, commodities and telecommunications. He therefore has experience of both commercial arbitrations under major institutional rules (such as the ICC and LCIA) and arbitration related court applications.
