Neil Moles, Managing Director of The Progeny Group, says: “The Corporate Team’s appointment is a key move for Progeny. Their extensive experience and expertise in corporate law will greatly assist in further enhancing the firm’s practice.

Progeny was born out of an ambition to create the first multi-service professional platform designed to match client goals with those of the professionals advising them. This further raises the Group’s profile in the commercial legal sector.”

With the head office located in Progeny House, Leeds and offices in the heart of Central London, Progeny provides an integrated platform and extensive network of wealth planners, private client and corporate solicitors, to meet the needs of individuals, families and businesses.
