Grant Thornton resigns as auditor of Gateley

Before the end of its term in office Grant Thornton steps down as auditor of international law firm

GRANT THORNTON has resigned as auditor of international law firm Gateley before its term in office was due to end.

In a letter Grant Thornton said: “As we ceased to hold office before the end of our term of office, you are also required to inform the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales that we have ceased to hold office and send a copy of the statement of reasons to the Institute.”

KPMG will now become auditors of the business.

Grant Thornton said: “There are no circumstances connected with our ceasing to hold office which we consider should be brought to the attention of the members of the creditors of the company.”

Gateley acquired work in progress from the Manchester office of collapsed law firm Halliwells.

Grant Thornton signed off on the company accounts in Janauary for the year ending 30 April 2011.

A spokeswoman for Gateley said the firm put the audit out to tender and wanted the auditor to begin working with the business before the start of its next financial year in May.
