Milsted Langdon ChairmanJonathan Langdon, said: “Milsted Langdon is always looking for opportunities to merge with like-minded practices whose values and approach match our own.

“We are delighted to have acquired CCPtax, and we look forward to welcoming and working with its clients. Mike Ashley is a valuable addition to our senior team, and his move to Milsted Langdon will ensure a smooth transition following the merger.”
