London,– The top 25 accountancy firm, HW Fisher & Company, has merged with the London-based chartered accountants Rhodes & Rhodes.


The tie-up will see all Rhodes & Rhodes’ partners and staff relocate to HW Fisher’s London headquarters later this year.


Rhodes & Rhodes was founded in 1939 and has an extensive client base of both young and established businesses, as well as high net worth individuals and their families.


Its expertise is a natural complement to that of HW Fisher & Company, a firm established in 1933 and which provides a personal, partner-led service to entrepreneurial SMEs, large corporates and third sector organisations as well as private clients.


Michael Davis, managing partner at HW Fisher & Company, explains: “The acquisition of Rhodes & Rhodes is an important milestone in our strategy for sustained growth. It’s an innovative and intensely professional firm, with a philosophy and values similar to our own – so this is the right acquisition at the right time.


“We look forward to welcoming Rhodes & Rhodes’ three highly experienced partners, staff and clients to the HW Fisher family, and will continue to offer the same high quality, personalised service that their clients prize so highly.”
