The firm was established in 1983 and has grown from the founding partner and his secretary into a 128 strong team with 12 partners across 4 offices in Darlington, Durham, York and Middlesbrough.

As one of the largest independent firms in the region, we are large enough to have experts providing a range of multi-disciplinary skills whilst retaining our ability to provide excellent personal service to meet our clients’ bespoke needs.

We are privileged to work with some of the region’s most successful entrepreneurial businesses to help them achieve their business and financial goals.


We asked our teams to share some of their experiences with you to illustrate what it’s really like working with us. They talk about their roles, training routes, career progression and the impact they make on the firm.

Plus, you get to hear from some of the inspiring colleagues you could be working with.
