The Firm's Culture

When the firm was established in 1996 with just 2 partners, they created something extremely special: a firm where work of the highest level is undertaken by specialist teams with national and international reputations, but without the corporate 'heaviness' of a big firm environment; a firm which is pervaded by a collegiate atmosphere of universal respect and consideration – for other members of staff, for clients, for our communities and for anyone else we engage with (even animals!).

I came here in 2008 because the Wrigleys people I had met were warm, friendly and interesting, clearly good at their jobs, but not hierarchical; and that is how I have found the firm to be. Despite the fact that we have expanded exponentially from the original 2 partners to just under two hundred members of staff in 2016, we still actively aspire to a lighter, 'family' feel, which celebrates individuality in all its wonderful diversity. At Wrigleys, people really are valued and cared for, whatever the role they carry out for the firm or their level of seniority - and everyone mucks in. We give talented people at all levels a platform to achieve what they are motivated to achieve, both at and outside work. There is genuinely no glass ceiling here: women are represented equally at all levels of the firm, right through to the strategic board.

It is quite difficult to put into words what makes Wrigleys - well, Wrigleys; but we are working very hard to protect it as we grow, challenging our big and our little decisions to make sure we do not lose that special "Wrigleys-ness" by not paying attention.
