Wright Solicitors are proud to be celebrating 100 years of service to the community this year.

The firm was founded back in 1919 by William Wright. However, 1919 was also significant for another reason. This was the year that marked the passing of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act which allowed women to qualify as solicitors and barristers, sit on juries and volunteer as magistrates.

The legal profession has made significant progress in the last one hundred years, but so has the gender make up of Wright Solicitors.

From a predominantly male run firm, the firm has evolved to a position where 70% of its fee earning staff are female.

So not only are Wright Solicitors celebrating 100 years of service to the community, but we are also proud to be celebrating a century of women in the law.
