Progeny expands into real estate conveyancing with Watsons Law acquisition

Progeny has acquired Leeds-based Watsons Law, adding the provision of experienced and expert real estate conveyancing to its professional services proposition.  

The new service will exist alongside Progeny’s current multi-disciplinary offering of independent financial planning, asset management, tax, HR, and private and corporate legal advice and support.

Founded in 2004 and with a team of 10, Watsons Law is a technology and service-driven firm of lawyers, specialising in conveyancing, land and property law.

Julian Watson, managing partner of Watsons Law, said: “This is an exciting new chapter in our history and we’re delighted to become part of the Progeny fold. Watsons Law and Progeny share the same values of delivering excellence for the benefit of our clients. Joining Progeny is a natural fit for us.”

“A larger firm brings opportunities of scale; becoming part of Progeny’s multi-disciplinary business offers unique opportunities for exponential growth. Our clients can now benefit from a vast range of additional services to meet all their legal and financial needs.”

Neil Moles, chief executive officer of Progeny, said: “Watsons Law will bring a huge amount of residential real estate conveyancing experience to the business, and with it we can offer another vital and high quality service to our clients.”

“Julian and the team have a strong track record of unparalleled expertise and guidance in this space in addition to a quality client following.  We’re delighted to be able to welcome them into the business and to include this new discipline in the spectrum of professional services we offer.”

A team from Progeny’s corporate legal department, led by Alistair Scott-Somers, acted as legal adviser to Progeny on the transaction.
