Bristol-based chartered accountancy firm Milsted Langdon has completed its second merger in the space of six months.

The firm has merged with fellow Bristol practice David Cottrell & Co, in a deal which completed on 1 November.

Staff from David Cottrell have moved into Milsted Langdon’s offices at One Redcliff Street, with David himself continuing in a consultancy role.

He comments: “I will be retiring in the next couple of years, so I wanted to ensure that my clients would continue to receive the same high levels of service they have come to expect, while also considering the future of my staff.

“I have known Milsted Langdon for nearly 20 years and believe their culture is very similar to ours, so our staff and clients alike should notice very little difference in approach.

“I believe this move will provide our clients not only with an even better level of service but also with a greater depth of expertise, as well as providing my staff with greatly increased opportunities to develop their careers.”

Roger Isaacs, a partner at Milsted Langdon, comments: “As a firm, we are always looking for opportunities to merge with other like-minded practices whose values and approach match our own.”
