Essex consolidation as Bird Luckin and Rickard Keen merge

TWO of the most well-known Essex firms have joined forces.

Rickard Keen, with offices in Southend and Basildon, and Chelmsford-based Bird Luckin have merged to create Rickard Luckin.

“The new firm will give a greater breadth and depth of experience to our clients, but building close long term relationships is what the enlarged firm is passionate about and will maintain at its core. The merged firm will consolidate our presence in the county,” said Alan Worsdale, managing director of Rickard Keen.

“Our team members are all very positive about the change as it will result in new opportunities for them to progress, while also making us very appealing to those looking to start their career in accountancy.

“As well as making it easier to recruit, it will help with succession and enable us to compete against the larger national firms whilst at the same time, give a value for money service to start ups and smaller businesses.”

There are no job losses from the merger.

Bird Luckin is ranked 83 in the Accountancy Age Top 50+50 Survey of firms sponsored by Wolters Kluwer, with £5.2m in revenues.
