Whether your practice is a firm of accountants, lawyers, architects, engineers, quantity surveyors or another profession, we have specialist teams across the country who are experienced in supporting your business.

Our Professional Practices Team understands the key business objectives and risks that your professional firm must manage. The traditional structures and procedures for many practices have evolved organically, often without proper planning, with LLPs and corporate structures becoming increasingly popular. We can help design an appropriate legal and reporting structure to meet your objectives, whilst helping to retain the partnership ethos.

Our experience has enabled us to advise many practices from a variety of sectors. Our partner-led approach allows us to understand the client’s long-term objectives and tailor our advice to both the practice and its owners.

  • Preparation of year-end accounts
