Joel HeapDWF

DWF is well known for representing household names from the transport, retail, and telecoms sectors in complex commercial disputes. Also of note is the firm’s ever-growing reputation for defending group litigation, particularly in relation to business critical data breaches; the team’s recent work for British Airways – on which Andrew Harris acts as the key partner – is indicative of its preeminence in this space. The Manchester office also fields both national practice head Joel Heap and local team lead Lee Norman. At the senior associate level, Michelle Maher is particularly recommended.
