Recently Progeny announced it was planning to recruit 9 new staff thanks to a recent growth in business.
Mr Easton has run his own specialist law practice for a number of years and works in Wills, Powers of Attorney, Trusts, Executries and estate planning.
He will help expand Progeny’s offering in these areas in Scotland.
Based in Glasgow, he will work closely with Progeny’s Financial Planning and wealth management team in Edinburgh .
Mr Easton said: “I am delighted to be joining the team and I’m looking forward to helping to build Progeny’s unique proposition in Scotland.
“Traditionally, many of my clients have been referrals from third parties so I’m well experienced in working with financial advisers and their clients in ensuring they have the correct legal foundations in place to manage their estates and preserve their wealth.
“In addition, many of my legal clients will have a need for Financial Planning and investment management support alongside the legal advice. Working with Progeny will give them effective and efficient access to this wealth of expertise.”
Martin Hasyn, managing director of Progeny’s legal team, Progeny Law and Tax, said: “Stuart’s knowledge and experience of Scottish law and his specialisation in Wills, Powers of Attorney, Trusts, Executries and estate planning will help us in meeting the needs of our Scottish legal clients and in firmly establishing Progeny’s multi-disciplinary offering in Scotland.”
Mr Easton began his legal career at Biggart Baillie, one of Scotland’s biggest law firms. After seven years there, in August 2010 he started his own firm. He has also been a tutor at Glasgow University for many years, teaching postgraduate law students about his areas of specialisation.
