Wrigleys takes on Duncan Milwain, Shipley Food Project founder

Wrigleys Solicitors has recruited Duncan Milwain, the founder of the Shipley Food Project.

Milwain (pictured right), has worked at Allen & Overy, Addleshaw Goddard and most recently as head of the Charities and Social Enterprise team at Lupton Fawcett Denison Till. He combines his legal work with his role as the founding director of the high profile social enterprise Shipley Food Project, which forms part of The Real Junk Food Project network.

“I am delighted to have joined Wrigleys,” said Milwain. “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.”

He is joined by two new colleagues, Lucy O’Reilly (pictured, left) and Kasim Ahmed (pictured, centre).

O’Reilly has moved north to join Wrigleys farms & estates team from Charles Russell Speechly. She specialises in advising rural families and businesses on tax and succession planning.

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.
