In a move that signals not only growth for the practice, but perhaps also for Oldham’s business sector as a whole, Wrigley Claydon have bolstered their Commercial Department with the appointment of a new assistant commercial solicitor.
Soibilate Iketubosin has joined the practice to support the growing portfolio of corporate clients Wrigley Claydon looks after. Soibi will be assistant solicitor to John Porter, managing partner at the firm and offer legal advice, guidance and support to large corporations, SMEs and small owner managed businesses on Employment, Commercial/Corporate and Commercial Property matters.
Of Soibi’s appointment, John Porter said, “We have been supporting businesses in Oldham for over 200 years. As the economy begins to grow again Soibi’s appointment will ensure that we have the capacity to support local businesses and help them to prosper.”
Soibi joined in mid-January as a newly qualified solicitor after completing his training contract at Leslie Charles Solicitors, having done a secondment in Corporate at Manchester-firm JMW. He graduated from the University of Manchester in 2012 before completing his LPC at the University of Law. Soibi is passionate about business and enjoys the challenge of finding solutions for businesses. He said, “I am very pleased to be joining such a prestigious firm. It combines the traditions and values that are so important in the legal profession, with excellent technology and an understanding of how modern business operates.”
Soibi speaks French and German and is keen to learn Spanish. He hopes to utilise his language skills in his new role by offering his services as a translator, something which he hopes they will be of benefit to all Wrigley Claydon’s clients.
