As one of the leading specialist practices outside London, Wrigleys has embraced the modern era while upholding the traditions and beliefs which have marked the firm out as distinct from its peers in a crowded legal market.
We are recognised as experts in our specialist areas and give practical, common sense, and technically excellent advice to our clients with whom we form valued long-term relationships.
Since the firm was established in 1996, we have been particularly fortunate and successful in attracting and growing nationally recognised specialists within a more flexible and collegiate environment.
We attribute the success of the firm to defining and maintaining who we are as a reliable, enduring niche firm, delivering service with understated quality.
We see our trainee programme as vital to the continued success of our firm. We benefit from high retention rates of our trainees, many of whom have gone on to have successful careers in the firm. We recognise that nurturing the talents of young lawyers will help maintain our position as one of the leading specialist practices in the country.
Wrigleys usually runs a vacation scheme in June or July. Only applicants for training contracts are eligible for the vacation scheme.
To apply for the vacation scheme, please apply for a training contract by 31 March. If you apply after 31 March you will still be considered for a training contract, but will not be eligible for the vacation scheme.
We offer seats in three or four of the following distinct areas:
Trusts, probate and tax planning
Charities (including employment and commercial issues for charities and not for profit organisations)
Court of Protection
Trainees at Wrigleys are given early responsibility and make an important contribution to our teams and are seen as integral to the success of the firm.
Details of our approach to the SQE will appear on our website.
Individual differences are embraced at Wrigleys and we strive to create a working environment in which people feel supported and are able to be themselves. We are committed to promoting an inclusive environment which supports the growth of all our people and we welcome applications from candidates of all ethnicities, religions, disabilities, sexual orientation, social backgrounds and gender identities.
