PKF Cooper Parry and Clement Keys confirm merger talks

TWO Midlands firms have revealed they are in advanced talks over a merger – creating one of the largest firms of chartered accountants in the region.

PKF Cooper Parry will merge with Birmingham-based Clement Keys in early January 2016. The newly merged firm will have a combined revenue of £30m and a team of more than 350 people across its two offices in the east and west Midlands.

Once completed, the merged firm will retain the PKF Cooper Parry name.

PKF Cooper Parry CEO Ade Cheatham said the firms share a “closely aligned vision to be number one in the privately-owned market across the whole of the Midlands through creating a fiercely independent firm which is purely focused on exceptional client service”.

He added: “This merger will enhance and complement our offering to clients, bringing sector expertise and extensive international reach along with extensive experience across core services under one brand. This exciting development demonstrates that we are ambitious for growth and determined to be seen as the adviser of choice for privately owned business.”
