Thomas Westcott and Butterworth Jones merge

The deal will enable the new practice to leverage a broader range of services to Butterworth Jones' client base

TWO south-west firms have merged, creating a 24-partner practice.

Devon-based Thomas Westcott and Butterworth Jones, from Somerset, will bring together their 18 offices and 190 staff.

The deal should enable the new practice to leverage a broader range of services to Butterworth Jones’ client base.

Richard Thomas, chairman of Thomas Westcott, said: “The merger is the ideal coming together for us and our clients as we continue to build a full-service accountancy business delivering first-class proactive support that adds real value to our clients.

“Butterworth Jones is a well-established and successful accountancy firm and we believe the two firms’ highly-complementary service offerings will significantly strengthen our overall market position in the South West and beyond.”

John Parker, managing partner of Butterworth Jones, added: “Our hallmark is to deliver specialist services across a range of sectors through local offices.”

Butterworth Jones was founded almost 100 years ago, and operates from five offices in Bridgwater, Burnham-on-Sea, Langport, Somerton and Weston-Super-Mare.

Thomas Westcott is ranked 67 in the Accountancy Age Top 50+50 Survey sponsored by Wolters Kluwer.
