Annabelle Wheeler - Norton Rose Fulbright

Within: Aviation

Norton Rose Fulbright has 'extensive experience in acting for all participants in the aviation industry' and the team, which benefits from the firm's international footprint, 'really understands the issues faced by airlines'. It is active across a spectrum of aviation instructions and has in-depth expertise in aircraft transaction disputes, antitrust, competition work and regulatory matters. The team is also adept at handling commercial contracts and disputes, cyber risk management, data protection, insurance, M&A, passenger claims and slot trading issues. Flight delay compensation claims, brought under EU Regulation 261/2004, are a key focus for the team where it acts for leading airlines such as British Airways, easyJet, Jet2.com, TUI and Wizz Air; Robin Springthorpe, who is deemed 'one of the best litigators in the field', represented easyJet on a second appeal to the Court of Appeal concerning a delayed flight. Elsewhere, Simon Chamberlain handles regulatory and commercial matters; he 'knows when to 'push' a point and when not to', and Patrick Farrell heads the contentious aviation practice.  Charlotte Winter handles transactional disputes for operators, banks and lessors and senior associate Annabelle Wheeler, who is based across the firm's London and Munich offices, handles contentious matters in the sector.
