CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS Hall Livesey Brown, which has offices in Tarporley, Chester, Shrewsbury and Wrexham, has merged its practice with Colin F Whitfield & Co.

The opportunity for Hall Livesey Brown to merge with Colin Whitfield & Co arose following the firm’s managing partner, Simon Haynes, announcement to retire in June 2018.

“Colin F Whitfield & Co has been looking for a credible firm to merge with and we have been looking for a practice with similar values to provide the services and same level of service clients of Colin F Whitfield & Co have come to expect from us over the years,” said Simon Haynes.

“While we are very proud of the more than 23 years history of our firm, we also recognised that the next step was to merge with a firm of comparable quality that would enable us to protect the interests of our clients,” added Simon.

“Hall Livesey Brown shares our philosophy of helping our clients grow and succeed, and the merger will enable us to offer more comprehensive business advice tailored to our clients, while ensuring continuity of service.”

Adrian Crank, Managing Partner of Hall Livesey Brown comments on the firm’s plans for growth: “Our practice was first established in 1924. In our ninety-year history, the practice has grown organically, expanding its office network across Cheshire and North Wales. As a progressive firm, we have decided to grow our practice through a merger because we believe that the addition of Simon Haynes from Colin F Whitfield & Co and our growing team will help us to better serve our client base,” said Adrian.

Their combined practice boasts a team of more than 35 professionals to service their dedicated client bases across their four offices in Tarporley, Cheshire, Wrexham and Shrewsbury.

Colin F Whitfield & Co have now closed their offices in Whitchurch and Wrexham, relocating their team to the Hall Livesey Brown office in Tarporley.

Hall Livesey Brown was advised on the acquisition by Alison Brennan, from North West law firm DTM Legal.
