Glasgow takeover boosts BKR Haines Watts in Scotland

BKR Haines Watts has merged its Glasgow office with a local firm, Churchill & Co.

The merger was announced by David Wilson, managing partner of BKR’s Glasgow practice.

Tom Churchill set up Churchill & Co in 1981 and has joined the combined office as senior partner in Glasgow.

The merger doubles the size of the Glasgow office, and the team is further strengthened by the arrival from KPMG of Elaine Bryce, who becomes manager of the BKR business recovery and insolvency operation in Glasgow.

Churchill said: ‘In the fast-changing accountancy profession it is essential that accountancy practices should have the necessary back-up and technical support to enhance and extend the range of services offered to clients.

‘That is why I have decided to merge my practice with BKR Haines Watts. They deal exclusively with private sector, owner-managed businesses, and, having visited a number of their offices, I am satisfied that their approach and relationship with clients fits very well with our own style.’

Ted Lambie becomes an associate in Glasgow and the combined team has moved into the former Churchill & Co. office in Bath Street.
