Matthew Featherstone
Solicitor

What led you to apply to Wrigleys for your role?

I wanted to work for a specialist, private client-focussed law firm to continue to develop within my chosen practice area of agricultural and rural estates work. As an outsider looking in I had always perceived Wrigleys as the region's leading rural and landed estates firm and, put simply, I wanted to be part of it.

What would your advice be to somebody considering joining Wrigleys and why?

When considering a move to a different firm, the first thing to establish is what sort of firm you want to work for: consider the ethos of a firm and really think about whether you are a compatible fit for that firm. If you want to work in a firm with a collegial feel which values its staff regardless of their levels, then Wrigleys is the place for you. Wrigleys has built up an enviable reputation in the niche areas in which it operates, leading to a varied and interesting client base which you can expect to be quickly exposed to.

What sets Wrigleys apart from other places where you have worked?

The firm listens to its staff and acts on feedback, regardless of who has given it. Although a relatively large firm, Wrigleys structure has retained the smaller family feel which so many larger firms lose as they grow over time. Individuals are encouraged to flourish as Wrigleys genuinely value the importance of a diverse team.

How would you sum up working at Wrigleys?

Wrigleys deliver high quality work within an excellent team-oriented framework. Above all else, it is the welcoming environment – something many firms may claim to have, but fail to put into practice - which makes Wrigleys.
