As a commercial litigator my work spans both commercial litigation and dispute management, but also providing advice on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and partnerships, equity capital markets, private equity and venture capital.

DWF‘s ‘commercially focused‘ Manchester commercial litigation team has an impressive client base including key players across the telecoms, utilities and energy, public, food and drink, and retail sectors. The group is developing a specialism for defending data breach group actions with Andrew Harris being a key name to note; he represented W M Morrisons Supermarkets before the Supreme Court in a claim brought by over 10,000 individuals. It also launched a ‘Breach Counsel’ product, a crisis management service that combines experts in contentious and non-contentious data and cybersecurity issues to manage and mitigate risks. The group counts procurement litigation as another area of specialism, where it benefits from the experience of acting for both public sector clients and private sector claimants. ‘Great negotiator and tacticianJoel Heap is experienced in procurement litigation, as well as corporate disputes and pensions litigation. The team is led by Lee Norman, who counts professional negligence and breach of employment contract disputes among his areas of focus, and includes director Daniel Williams and senior associates Michelle Maher and Benjamin Johnson.
