New firm Hägen Wolf establishes national HQ in Leeds

Hägen Wolf, a new property litigation firm, has opened its national headquarters in Leeds.

The specialist property litigation firm, established by lawyer Matt Pugh and launching with a team of nine, will operate nationally from offices in Leeds and London.

Its experienced team offers expertise across a range of industry sectors, from transport to retail and residential property.

Pugh has worked at Leeds firms Ford & Warren and Langleys. He has more than 20 years of experience as a specialist property litigator, acting for clients ranging from owner-managed businesses and individuals to international corporations, such as Del Monte, Stagecoach and ALS Global.

His practice encompasses all aspects of commercial, residential and agricultural property disputes, and he frequently deals with tribunal work and contested land registry applications as well as traditional court-based litigation and has a high success rate in mediation.

Commenting on the launch of Hägen Wolf, Pugh said: “We are developing a team of highly experienced property specialists from across the UK, whose expertise spans a wide range of sectors. Our firm is built around customer service, and we are building a culture that recognises and rewards high levels of customer satisfaction.”

“While the London office is already growing and we’ve had interest from other parts of the country, Leeds, as one of the largest hubs of legal talent in the UK, will be home to our headquarters as we expand.”

Hägen Wolf has already secured work with transport operators, business owners and property investors across the UK.

Pugh said: “Thanks to a respected and experienced team we will be working both directly with clients or in partnership with their advisors. I believe that collaboration is key not only to our success but the continued growth of Leeds as a world-class centre for legal services.”
