Leeds law firm acquires boutique practice amid expansion plan

A Leeds law firm has acquired a local boutique legal practice as part of its ongoing expansion.

Schofield Sweeney has taken over Leeds-based firm Prodicus Legal in order to expand its proposition.

Established in 2013, Prodicus Legal specialises in complex shareholder disputes, commercial frauds, insolvency litigation and property disputes for businesses and individuals across the UK.

James Wood, partner at Prodicus Legal, commented: “Schofield Sweeney has a strong reputation in the market and the opportunity to create a combined entity will provide clients with access to a wider range of services, strategic advice and excellent client care.

“We’ve seen an increase in litigation activity this year and the safe assumption is that there will be significant levels of fall-out from distressed debt. As part of a larger team we will continue to offer the sound commercial advice and support that our clients have come to trust.”

Steven Millward, partner at Schofield Sweeney, added: “We are really pleased to welcome the Prodicus team and their clients to Schofield Sweeney, where they will continue to enjoy the high quality of advice and service that they have been used to, together with access to the range of other services we provide.

“We have responded well as a business to the challenges presented by Covid (since March we have recruited close to 20 lawyers) and look to the future with cautious optimism as we continue to grow.”
