Specialist shipping, rail and logistics firm Myton Law is at Multimodal for the first time this year at Stand 4078 within the Rail Freight Group Pavilion.  Based on Hull’s Humber river front, Myton Law is positioned at the heart of the UK’s largest ports conurbation by volume, now also a key centre for the UK renewable energy sector, but the firm has a national and international client base.

Tipped in this year’s Legal 500 as a top firm for ‘Transport’ in the Yorkshire & Humber region, Myton Law was established in 2010 by Scott Yates and John Habergham, who have 50 years of logistics sector experience between them. 

Habergham is listed in lawyers guide Chambers 2019 as one of the top lawyers in the country for his logistics expertise, sharing joint third placing and the only Yorkshire lawyer to be ranked for logistics. 

Yates is also on the board of Hull’s Green Port Growth Programme and Myton Law is flying the flag for the Humber region at Multimodal distributing maps at the request of Marketing Humber.

Rail expertise was added to Myton Law’s strengths in 2016 when the firm recruited Chris Thornes, then Head of Commercial Law at DB Cargo UK, which explains the firm’s Multimodal stand location within the RFG Pavilion, and Thornes now leads a growing rail team. 

Myton Law is also an active member of the National Workboat Association, BIFA, Team Humber Marine Alliance (over 200 marine and off shore supply chain companies), UKWA (Myton hosted this May’s UKWA North East Region Conference) and Leeds Marine Insurance Association (LMIA) - Myton Law’s John Habergham is the LMIA’s chairman elect and presented a paper entitled ‘Drones and Multimodal Carriage’ to the Association’s annual workshop this Spring.

In the UK air freight sector, notably, Myton Law achieved a ground breaking judgment in the London Mercantile Court in 2017, which provided clarity on a key legal point when a ruling established that the English Law precedent against ‘set-off’ in freight matters applies not only to goods moved by sea and road, but also by air.

Clients include rail freight, port and logistics operators, including the John Good Group, JR Rix and Samskip Multimodal.
