Since we came together in 1996 the growth of Wrigleys from a 2 partner firm with a total staff of 14, to a medium sized firm now with 22 partners and a total staff of over 130, has been achieved in equal measure by organic growth and from our origins, absorbing the specialist private client and charity departments of other well known practices. Future growth will be restricted to our existing specialist areas, but we continue to expand and would welcome recognised experts in those areas who wish to join us.
