Partner promotion at Wrigleys Solicitors focuses on agricultural property specialism

Wrigleys Solicitors has promoted Matthew Featherstone, a member of its agriculture and rural property team, to partner.

Featherstone (pictured) qualified as a solicitor in 2014 while training at a Yorkshire-based rural specialist law firm and has been an integral part of the agriculture and rural property team since he joined Wrigleys in 2017.

He works closely with landed estates and farming clients to advise on all areas of agricultural law, including freehold property, agricultural leases, sporting rights and diversification projects.

Featherstone is also a member of the Agricultural Law Association and is involved with a number of bodies representing rural interests.

His promotion to partnership is based on his ability to create positive relationships, to see things at the client’s level, understand what they need in a practical sense and to deliver that in a pragmatic way.

Featherstone said: “I was initially drawn to Wrigleys because of the firm’s reputation as a leading firm in agriculture and landed estates and it is extremely exciting to now join the partnership and be a part of growing our reputation in that area. Wrigleys takes pride in taking a long-term view of client relationships and I am very much looking forward to continuing to build on those relationships in the future.”

Marie-Louise Hamilton, managing partner at Wrigleys, said: “I am delighted that Matthew has been appointed as a partner in Wrigleys. His ability to provide highly technical, yet pragmatic advice shows Matthew’s expertise and deep understanding of his clients’ specific needs.”
