Insurance and commercial law specialist HF has appointed Emily Wheatley to head its commercial property division based in Leeds. 

Wheatley brings extensive experience in all areas of commercial property law, strengthening the expanding commercial and corporate offering at HF.

Ronan McCann, CEO & managing partner at HF said: 'HF’s commercial law division has gone from strength to strength since it was formed 3 years ago. We recently added a corporate team to complement our dispute resolution and insolvency and restructuring teams and Emily’s appointment comes at an exciting time for HF as our commercial law division moves towards its initial targeted annual revenue of £10m.

'We see significant scope for scaling our commercial division over the next 12 months through M & A activity and through further selective lateral hire.'
