Two of Stratford upon Avon’s leading accountancy firms have merged to create exciting new opportunities for businesses in the region.

Murphy Salisbury is combining forces with Leigh Graham Associates to further enhance its stellar resources, adding to the incredible overall knowledge and experience the firm already has and protecting the quality of service upon which the firm prides itself.

The decision by both firms will support their ambitious growth plans through collaboration and aligned goals.

Speaking about the exciting opportunities on offer, Luke Bryan, a Partner at Leigh Graham Associates who has taken up the role of Director at the newly merged firm, said: “We are delighted to be merging with such a respected and well-established local firm who share the same values for client care and service that we have.

“Through this merger, we hope to share ideas around what makes a great accountancy firm, what we each do especially well, and how best to tackle new and interesting areas within the industry.

“We seek to be at the forefront of people’s minds when they think of capable, friendly and approachable accountants. With the increased resources at our disposal, we feel we will be best placed to help our existing and future clients navigate the changing landscape of taxation and compliance.”

Current plans are for both firms to remain in their current offices at Warwick Road and John Street in the heart of Stratford upon Avon. The newly merged firm is now led by four passionate Directors, supported by a team of more than 50 accountancy, tax specialists and business advisory professionals.

Mark Bullock, Director at Murphy Salisbury, said: “Our merger with Leigh Graham Associates brings experience, passion and a wide range of clients, from a variety of sectors to our practice.
