Bentley Jennison grows in Midlands

Mid-tier firm Bentley Jennison has strengthened its presence in the midlands by merging with small firm Dawes & Co.

Following the move, the firm, which will trade under the name Bentley Jennison, now has 11 partners and 150 staff in Birmingham. Competition between firms in the region is escalating with the decision by UK-quoted accountancy consolidator Tenon to locate an office there. Tenon’s office, managed by two former HLB Kidsons partners, offers a range of services which compete directly with Bentley Jennison.

But a spokesperson for Bentley Jennison said that for the time being the firm did not feel under threat from Tenon’s presence.

‘There’s plenty of work out there,’ the spokesperson said. ‘Bentley Jennison has been around for a while now and has a solid client base.’

Dawes, which will relocate to Bentley Jennison’s offices next month, has been operating in the area since the 1920s. All five partners and 19 staff will be retained by the larger firm, bringing Bentley Jennison up to 51 partners nationwide.
