On merging with over 150 accountancy practices Julian said: “We’ve followed this movement since May 2018. I’ve been very impressed with the organisation’s vision and ability to amalgamate a substantial community of accountants across both the UK and Ireland regions. Our firm has conducted much due diligence on the entire acquisition process. We are impressed with both the ability to merge 150+ independent practices and the outlook for the firms to work together for mutual benefit. The support and advice by a top 6 accountancy practice and a leading legal practice has supported our decision to proceed into the Xeinadin consolidation. We can also confirm this is the first consolidation of its type and believe our practice and its clients can prosper from the ‘Firm of the Future’ concept.
We are delighted to be able to support both the group and non-Xeinadin professional firms with both our Corporate Finance and Business Recovery specialisms.
