JW Hinks continues expansion with Austral Ryley merger

Edgbaston firm makes its second acquisition of the year, as Austral Ryley comes on board

JW HINKS has completed its second merger this year, bringing fellow Birmingham firm Austral Ryley on board.

Austral Ryley senior partner Gary Ashmore and the rest of his team have transferred to JW Hinks. At the start of the year, JW Hinks acquired Mason Law.

JW Hinks managing partner Paul Jones said: “We’re pleased to have concluded this merger with such a strong firm of independent accountants who share our philosophy of providing the best possible service in a friendly and efficient manner.

“Future expansion is definitely in the pipeline in order to maintain and enhance our position as a leading independent practice in Birmingham and the West Midlands.”

The firm has also completed its move to LLP status.

Bearwood-based Austral Ryley was established in 1932, while Edgbaston-based JW Hinks was formed in 1896.
