Externalisation of public services began in the 1980s and is now a commonplace. The Coalition government's aim has been to promote this further, spinning off some public services into social enterprises, charities and private sector organisations.


Some of the externalisation exercises that Wrigleys have been involved in include:

  • Academy conversions.
  • The Probation Service.
  • Leisure services.
  • Libraries.
  • Care services.

All these transaction require expertise advice on commercial law, TUPE and pensions.
