Leeds-based wealth management firm the Lawrence Scoffield Group has merged with private client and corporate advisory law firms.

The company - which has been rebranded as Progeny Wealth - form part of a new multi-service professional platform.

It has been merged with Progeny Private Law and Mark Burns Legal Services, now known as Progeny Corporate Law.

Neil Moles, who was managing director of the Lawrence Scoffield Group, has become managing director of Progeny Group.

He said: “Progeny provides a unique combination of wealth management and legal advice for private clients, corporates and family offices.

“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.”

Lawrence Scoffield Group was founded in 1980 in Leeds and was subject to a management-led buy-out in 2008.

Mark Burns, managing director of Progeny Corporate Law, said: “Progeny is a unique opportunity to provide private client legal and wealth management advice to our corporate clients.

“This addresses a need our corporate clients have to integrate their advice across multiple disciplines.”
