Andrew Wriglesworth  – Wrigleys Solicitors LLP

The Yorkshire-based contingent of ‘extremely intelligent and engaging lawyers’ at Wrigleys Solicitors LLP is led by Andrew Wriglesworth and Marie-Louise Hamilton at the Leeds office and Jane Netting , Lisa Eato and Lynne Bradey at the Sheffield office. The team deals with highly complex matters, which attracts a client base formed of three main sectors – farming and land-owners; family business owners; and injured, disabled and vulnerable individuals. Its workload involves high-value asset division disputes, with a focus on landed estates, trusts, succession arrangements and heritage assets. Hamilton heads the trust management services within the team. Experienced practitioner Julia Rangecroft came on board as a consultant in May 2022.
