PKF has bolstered its position in the South-East of England by acquiring
rival firm Pridie
Brewster
, which has offices in Guildford, Twickenham, Alton and
London, for an undisclosed fee.

The deal is expected to add £7m to PKF’s revenues, which came in at £116.8m

rival Smith & Williamson, which has annual revenues of £136.9m.

Pridie Brewster partners and staff in Guildford, London and Twickenham will
move into PKF premises, while Alton will join PKF’s existing network of 22
offices.

PKF
national managing partner,
Martin
Goodchild
said Pridie Brewster and PKF had ‘complementary skills’
which would ensure ‘a smooth transition’ to a single firm.

‘This combination creates an enlarged team with the financial and business
advisory skills to further develop the South-East market,’ Goodchild said.

Pridie Brewster managing partner, Richard Faulkner said the deal would
increase the firm’s market share in the region.
