TWO firms in central London have joined the association DFK International.
Carter Backer Winter (CBW) and Wilson Wright have become the London representatives of DFK International, a top-ten global accountancy association with over 400 offices in more than 90 countries worldwide.
Both firms have grown in recent years and are looking to build upon their international service through the association as members of its national group, DFK UK & Ireland.
DFK UK & Ireland now has 18 member firms operating within major geographical centres in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, the Channel Isles and Isle of Man.
Bob Law, chairman of DFK UK & Ireland, said: “We are delighted to have such strong representation within both our national group and DFK International from two highly professional firms in London.
“Their services are complementary and will provide us with excellent resources to meet the ever-increasing need for professional support and advice with more cross-border business being undertaken in one of the top financial centres in the world.”
Both CBW and Wilson Wright are full-service and sector-focused firms. CBW is based in Prescot Street in the City and has more than doubled in size over the past decade. Wilson Wright is based in Holborn Circus, central London, and has grown by 50% in the past three years.
Peter Winter, managing partner at CBW, said: “As a member of a larger association in terms of global revenues, we can demonstrate a greater ability to service the needs of larger domestic businesses, not only in the UK but abroad, which will give us an edge in our market.
“We believe DFK International is a great match in terms of our strategic growth plans and our people-led values, with a shared focus on building strong relationships among member firms which result in contact-led rather than directory-led referrals.”
