BKL expands media division with HW Claymans acquisition

NORTH LONDON FIRM BKL has confirmed the expansion of its media team with the acquisition of the nine-strong Haines Watts Claymans team, which specialises in film and television.

The Claymans team, headed by partner Damian Mildener, has already moved over to BKL’s single office in Finchley. BKL’s media offering now covers the full range of creative industries including music, advertising, film and television.

The move comes three years into a five-year expansion programme BKL has embarked on, which last year included a rebrand.

Mildener said: “The whole team and I are incredibly excited to work alongside BKL, especially with the quality of service we’ll be able to deliver to clients and the scope to reach new highs.”

Managing partner Jeff Hartstone (pictured) said: “I am very happy about Damian and his team joining BKL. Their expertise, particularly in the film and TV business, complements our existing offering in the creative industries. This is an important building block in our continuing ambitious growth plans.”

BKL stand at 61 with a fee income of £10m in the latest Accountancy Age Top 50+50, supported by Wolters Kluwer.
