THREE FIRMS are now members of the UK arm HLB International’s network. The latest addition is Hawsons, based in the north of England and the midlands.
Hawsons joins the recent appointments of Menzies and Hazlewoods in September.
The appointments follow the demise of its previous single UK member firm Vantis. HLB International spent two months considering its options for a Vantis replacement, having decided that appointing several UK firms was appropriate to take Vantis’ place.
The network predicts that it will add another three UK firms to expand its geographic coverage “over the next few months”.
“We were attracted to them because of their true commitment to deliver quality and international services,” said Martyn Weatherall, senior partner at Hawsons.
“We believe that they will be a strong force within the HLBI network and very much look forward to their involvement over the months and years ahead.”
