Legal Business

Profile: Carol Hui – Heathrow Airport Holdings

Heathrow’s legal chief on early responsibility, legal satnavs and runway three.

While most general counsel (GCs) at major companies will talk of the attraction of getting close to the business, in a highly varied career Heathrow Airport Holdings legal head Carol Hui really can claim to have been at the corporate coalface for years.

The Slaughter and May-trained lawyer has amassed a huge range of experience since moving to British Gas in a senior corporate role at a time when female lawyers in influential roles were rare in private practice, let alone industry.
