Wilkins Kennedy announces Canterbury merger with Lakin Clark

This is the latest office to open in Wilkins Kennedy’s south region, which now covers the whole of Kent

Top 20 accountancy firm Wilkins Kennedy has announced a merger with Canterbury-based firm Lakin Clark, with effect from 1 May 2016, bringing the total number of  its UK-based offices to 15.

This is the latest office to open in Wilkins Kennedy’s south region, which now covers the whole of the county of Kent. The new Canterbury office will join the three existing offices in Ashford, Orpington and Sandwich.

Wilkins Kennedy has undergone a number of mergers in recent months, further securing plans for expansion. The firm now has 15 UK-based offices in the south of England and one office in the Falkland Islands.

The two partners, senior consultant and 15 staff at Lakin Clark will bring with them a wealth of experience and expertise in a variety of sectors and will represent a valuable addition to the business.

Robert Reynolds, regional partner for Wilkins Kennedy’s southern region, said: “Wilkins Kennedy is excited by its continued expansion in Kent and we are pleased to welcome the new team to the firm.  I wish them all the best for a long and prosperous future with us here at Wilkins Kennedy.”

Nigel Cripps, partner at Lakin Clark, said: “Wilkins Kennedy is a good match in terms of business ethos, as we both have a key focus on client relationships and excellent customer service. The merger will enable us to offer clients a wider and more specialist range of services and support whilst retaining the values that have served us so well over the past 34 years.”
