Award-winning Bristol-based chartered accountancy firm Milsted Langdon has further expanded by merging with another practice in the city, Geoff Gollop & Co Limited.
Under the merger, which completed on 31 May, all staff and clients from Geoff Gollop & Co have transferred to Milsted Langdon’s office at One Redcliff Street, with Geoff himself joining the firm as a director.
The merger came about after Geoff Gollop, a former Lord Mayor of Bristol, was asked to continue in his current role as the city’s Deputy Mayor.
Commenting on the merger, Geoff said: “I wanted to ensure that my clients continued to receive the same high level of service that they have come to expect, even if I was personally having to devote more time to my civic duties, so I came to the conclusion that merging with a larger firm was the most sensible course of action. I felt that Milsted Langdon held similar views to mine in terms of its personal approach and the quality of service and work provided to clients.
“I am delighted to have joined such a forward-looking firm as Milsted Langdon and am confident that this merger is in the best interest of all my clients.”
Roger Isaacs, a partner at Milsted Langdon, said: “We are delighted to welcome Geoff, his team and his clients to the firm. We look forward to meeting his clients in due course and building on the excellent work that Geoff has been doing for them.
“Everyone has been working hard to ensure a seamless transition and it will be very much business as usual for Geoff’s clients, although they will now be able to benefit from the additional skills and expertise that Milsted Langdon offers.”
