Wrigleys Solicitors LLP  has a number of well-regarded practitioners including Malcolm Lynch, the ‘excellent’ Sylvie Nunn, and ‘very experienced’ newly promoted partner Peter Parker. Highlights included continuing to advise the Sisters of the Cross and Passion (the Catholic international religious order) on a wide range of issues including on various property transactions, governance, restructuring, regulatory and employment law advice. In another key matter the team advised Ampleforth Abbey Trustees on the transfer of an entire parish from Ampleforth Abbey Trustees to the local diocese. This transfer included all parish properties (the church, monastery, presbytery, schools, ancillary accommodation and parish shop). It has also advised the trustees of Leeds Teaching Hospitals Charitable Foundation and Leeds Hospital Charitable Foundation on the process of re-categorising and rationalising a significant amount of funds ahead of the charity’s conversion to independent status.
