DWF handles a wide range of commercial and contractual disputes, including shareholder and partnership disputes, for various national and international corporates. It is best known for IP, technology and media litigation, thanks to team head Ed Meikle’s expertise in this field and ‘impressive’ senior associate David Summerhayes’ niche in privacy and defamation matters. Summerhayes defended Northern Gas & Power against a number of claims brought by Utilitywise including an alleged breach of the restrictive covenants of the claimant’s former employees, a breach of undertakings provided in earlier proceedings and defamation arising from statements posted on Facebook. Other highlights included damages claims pertaining to the purchase and installation of boilers for North Eastern YWCA Trust.
