Yorkshire-based legal specialists Wrigleys Solicitors has recruited newly qualified solicitors Molly Neville and Will Fowers (pictured above) after they completed their training with the firm.

Fowers will join the pensions team and Neville will be part of the probate, trusts and estates planning team.

The firm has also welcomed trainees Susannah Hope and Mark Beech.

Wrigleys training partner Sue Greaves commented: 'I’m delighted to offer permanent positions to our qualifying trainee solicitors and welcome a new cohort of next-generation talent. We only take on a small number of trainees each year to guarantee we have the time and resources to provide excellent training. Will and Molly are a testament to this commitment and I’ve no doubt that Susannah and Mark will achieve similar success.'

Elsewhere in the firm, Jack Hedley joins Wrigleys as compliance manager. He brings five years of experience in legal compliance and will be responsible for maintaining the firm’s policies and procedures and ensuring they remain compliant with regulatory and ethical standards.

The firm has also introduced the role of associate and 33 of its solicitors have stepped into this position.

Marie-Louise Hamilton, managing partner at Wrigleys, commented: 'Our people are our greatest asset and some colleagues have been with us since inception. We attribute our success to defining and maintaining who we are and our niche experts are the lifeblood of the firm.

'We felt it important to recognise those with a certain level of experience and the introduction of the associate position not only does this but helps define a clear path of career progression for those newer to the industry. It’s a strategic move that we’re confident will aid retention and ensure we continue to attract some of the industry’s brightest talent.'
