Duncan Milwain is well known in Yorkshire and nationally following roles at Allen & Overy, Addleshaw Goddard and most recently as head of the Charities and Social Enterprise team at Lupton Fawcett Denison Till. Duncan combines his legal career with being a founding director of the high profile social enterprise Shipley Food Project which forms part of The Real Junk Food Project network. Duncan adds "I am delighted to have joined Wrigleys; it is exciting to form part of a team that together have developed a reputation in charity and the social economy and as leaders and innovators not only in the Yorkshire region but nationally."
Lucy O'Reilly has moved north to join Wrigleys Farms & Estates team from Charles Russell Speechly. Lucy specialises in advising rural families and businesses on tax and succession planning. On the Yorkshire private client market, Lucy comments "Yorkshire remains one of the strongest areas (if not the strongest area!) for landed clients in England and Wales. The realisation by these clients that their legal needs can be properly met by a Leeds based firm, as opposed to the traditional London firms, continues to make Wrigleys a compelling proposition for lawyers seeking to specialise in this area of work."
Kasim Ahmed has a First in Accountancy and Finance from Huddersfield University and joins Wrigleys' Trust Management team as a Trust, Tax and Accounting Assistant. Marie-Louise Hamilton, Partner and Joint-head of the Family Business team explains: "Wrigleys is one of very few law firms to have the accountancy expertise in-house to deal with trust administration, trust tax returns and trust accounts for our clients. Kasim's expertise will complement the existing team of Trust Managers and administrators."
