Under the deal, three new partners are joining the firm and in addition to London, St Albans and Milton Keynes, Mercer & Hole will have a new office in Rickmansworth.

On 1 October 2016, Mark Cassidy, David Jones and Sandy Bell will become partners of Mercer & Hole and will be based at the firm’s Rickmansworth office.

Mercer & Hole’s said Day, Smith & Hunter is a natural fit for the firm, also being independent, successful and long established.

“This is a progressive development for Mercer & Hole which will extend the firm’s geographical reach and further strengthen their presence in the South East. Mercer & Hole are already a Top 50 Accountancy Firm,” it said.

The deal is an important part of Wilkins Kennedy’s growth strategy for the Southern region, linking its office coverage in Ashford, Canterbury and Sandwich with its long-established presence in Orpington. In the medium term, the firm intends to develop Maidstone as a base for delivering additional services to privately owned and inward investment businesses in the county.

Rob Reynolds, regional managing partner of Wilkins Kennedy’s southern region said: “We are delighted to be joining forces with DSH, a firm that is well established and very highly respected throughout the region. This merger provides us with a significant base in the centre of the County to support our growing client base. We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues to the WK team.”
