Two long-established independent Sheffield based firms of chartered accountants have merged.
The merger of Hawsons and Holmes Widlake means the Holmes Widlake team of seven staff have now joined Hawsons at their offices in Broomhill, Sheffield.
Hawsons are a long established firm formed nearly 160 years ago and are now based in Sheffield, Doncaster and Northampton.
Hawsons’ senior partner Martyn Weatherall said:
“We are delighted to announce the merger of our two firms and extend a warm welcome to the clients and staff of Holmes Widlake as they join us.
“At Hawsons we have always focused on providing our clients with advice of the highest quality and we fully intend to extend this to our new clients.
“These new clients will also be able to benefit from the wide range of specialists we have and we look forward to working together to help them achieve success.”
As part of the merger, Trevor Holmes, former managing director of Holmes Widlake, will join Hawsons in a consultancy role.
“This is the right time for us to merge with Hawsons, who are a highly respected firm and share the same ethos in providing clients with an expert, yet friendly and personal service.
“I strongly believe this is the perfect fit for both clients and staff.”
