HS2 has turned to Stephenson Harwood transport partner Suzanne Tarplee to fill the role until it finds a permanent replacement. Tarplee took over from Morgan this month, and is in charge of in-house and external law firms as the project moves into its procurement and implementation phase.
Hopefully this stage will run more smoothly than earlier ones, as the company beat off litigation to block the government plans to build the high-speed rail last year.
