BDO acquires Leeds firm
BDO Stoy Hayward has acquired Leeds-based independent accountancy firm John Gordon Walton, more than doubling its presence in the region.
The combined offices will operate under the BDO brand, expanding its presence in Leeds’ City Square to cater for the extra 58 people.
BDO set up its Leeds office only 18 months ago but demand for the firm’s services has exceeded initial expectations, said the mid-tier firm.
Bill Holmes, managing partner of BDO’s Leeds’ office said: ‘We are delighted to link up with a firm of John Gordon Walton’s calibre. We believe that the combined firm will be stronger than either practice separately and be able to bring specialist skills and expertise to the clients that require them.’
