BKR Haines Watts hails new millennium with Hull expansion

Mid-tier firm BKR Haines Watts has increased its presence in the North of England by taking over Hull insolvency practice Hodkin and Co.

The merger is due to be finalised next Monday when the Hull firm will start trading under the BKR Haines Watts banner.

Hodkin and Co founder Ron Hodkin, who has worked in business recovery and insolvency for nearly four decades, will continue to work as a consultant.

He said: ‘We have a long established reputation locally and believe the merger with BKR Haines Watts will provide access to a stronger network of contacts and resources through which we can help the local business community meet and survive today’s commercial challenges.’

BKR’s Mark Loftus will join BKR’s new Hull office as partner, leading a 12-strong team.

He commented: ‘There are many issues facing businesses in difficulty across the North East and Hodkin and Co’s long experience in Hull will help boost our local knowledge.’

BKR Haines Watts is the sixteenth largest accountancy firm in the UK. It has offices in Leeds and Rotheram, as well as fourteen other towns and cities.
