Progeny Law and Tax has successfully appointed its first two trainee solicitors, a new milestone for the Leeds-headquartered business.

Jessica Maudsley and Sharon Tapfumaneyi join the 45-strong team, the first participants in what will be an annual solicitor trainee intake and which marks Progeny’s further investment in the future of professional services talent.

Zee Hussain, Director and Training Principal at Progeny Law and Tax, comments:

“These two training contracts are just the start of our plans to nurture the next generation of solicitors, which include working closely with our talent team to establish relationships with key universities and expanding into other jurisdictions.

“During the two-year programme, our trainees will spend time in our different areas of specialisation, encompassing private law, corporate law and real estate, whilst gaining considerable client contact experience.

“This offers them an excellent opportunity to develop and gain experience across different legal practice areas, as well as to understand how these interact with other professional services offered by Progeny, such as wealth management and HR consultancy.”

Trainee Solicitor, Sharon Tapfumaneyi, said:

“I was attracted to Progeny because of its holistic approach to professional services, with a focus on collaboration and valuing the role of different experts in achieving client goals.

“I know I will be able to grow at Progeny and the opportunities for professional development are both vertical and horizontal.”

Trainee Solicitor, Jess Maudsley, adds:

“It is exciting to be part of the bigger picture that the unique Progeny proposition offers, which in turn will contribute to my development both technically and commercially.

“My experience so far has been fantastic, everyone has been very helpful and welcoming, and I look forward to working in the different areas of Progeny Law and Tax over the next two years.”
