Leeds-based Hägen Wolf has won a series of appointments from major transport operators, marking a rapid expansion in the sector for the new property litigation firm.
The recently established Hägen Wolf has secured work with LNER, West Midlands Trains, Stagecoach and Northern Rail.
James Carter, network access manager at West Midlands Trains, said of the decision to appoint Hägen Wolf: “The team at Hägen Wolf understand the business-critical nature of our property assets. It’s vital that we have a legal partner that can act quickly to protect our interests and ensure we can deliver great service to our customers.”
Hägen Wolf recently secured an injunction for West Midlands Trains to ensure unrestricted public access to a station that was being obstructed by the actions of a nearby hotel operator.
Matt Pugh (pictured: main), managing partner of new property litigation firm Hägen Wolf, said: “Train operating companies, and indeed operators across the transport sector, have operationally critical needs from their property assets and need a law firm that can move quickly to defend their interests.”
“Our fast-growing team has a proven track record in the transport sector, and this reputation continues to support our expansion.”
The firm has recently appointed Tamara Obihele as a paralegal. She joins the firm from Walker Morris and brings a wealth of experience in issuing and managing possession claims and working closely with letting agents referrers and private landlords to provide on-demand support.
Commenting on her appointment, Pugh said: “Tamara joins the firm at an exciting time as we grow our client base nationally. She is a hugely talented addition to the team, and we look forward to supporting her career.”
Obihele will assist Hägen Wolf lawyers with disclosure, legal research and trial preparation on larger cases. She is a graduate of Leeds University.
