We’re delighted to announce we have combined with one of the North-West’s leading independent accountancy firms, Morris & Co. The fantastic opportunity to come together ranks our collective firms at number sixty in the top 100 UK accountancy practices with Accountancy Age.

Nick Ledingham and Desirie Lea will continue to lead the Morris & Co business in its ongoing success, ensuring that the personal, open and honest working relationships that clients have come to depend upon continue.

Nick said “It is even more crucial than ever to plan for the future and the partnership with DJH Mitten Clarke allows us to do just that. They are a business that work to the same principles and are very much focused on their team and clients.

He continued, “Coming together within the same group will allow us to further invest in the team’s wellbeing, training and development, to create the very best place to work. We will also strengthen our specialist services with capital allowances, R&D, financial planning and commercial & residential finance coming in-house through DJH Mitten Clarke. The partnership will enhance the expert advice we offer to our clients.”

Cheshire Oaks Business Park will remain the home of the seventy-plus Morris & Co team, and we have acquired the Chester House offices, demonstrating our commitment to both the firm and the North-West.

Scott Heath, Executive Director at DJH Mitten Clarke, said “Whilst exploring our options to enhance our presence in the North-West, we considered a number of firms but Morris & Co really stood out. We were blown away by the team and their specialisms and knowledge of the health care and franchise sectors.”

“We are acquiring much more than a balance sheet and a client-base, the acquisition will strengthen the infrastructure of both businesses. We can learn a lot from each other, adding value along the way for our clients.”
