Areas of practice:

Michael qualified in 2013 and is an employment lawyer within our charities and social economy team at Wrigleys. He has previously worked in the employment teams of a Harrogate law firm and large commercial firms in Leeds, where he gained a range of employment law experience by working on various commercial projects and employment tribunal work.

During a break from the legal profession, Michael worked for a Leeds-based debt charity where he helped their clients as part of the overall debt advice process. This experience also provided Michael with an insight into the nuanced employment law needs of charity sector employers, as well as providing experience of the often unique pressures a charity faces.
