DJH Mitten Clarke acquires Lyon Griffiths

October 2023

Russell Bedford member firm DJH Mitten Clarke has announced its acquisition of Nantwich accountancy practice, Lyon Griffiths. The strategic move comes as part of Lyon Griffith’s ongoing commitment to enhancing the business advisory service through technology, whilst supporting the firm's ambitious growth plans in the North of England. 

The new partnership provides Lyon Griffiths with access to inhouse specialist services such as R&D, capital allowances, commercial funding and corporate finance, which will further heighten the advice and support offered to clients. The integration will also open greater opportunities for the Nantwich team through increased investment into training, development, recruitment and wellbeing. 

Lyon Griffiths Managing Director, James Stokes, will continue to lead the Nantwich team with on the ground support from Stoke-on-Trent headquartered DJH Mitten Clarke. 

James commented: "Just like Lyon Griffiths, DJH Mitten Clarke is a relationship-focused, technology-driven, advisory firm that takes a forward-thinking approach to deliver value for its clients. After more than 90 years in business, we’re extremely excited about our next chapter and the opportunities that will be created for both our team and our clients."

James Beardmore, Chief Operating Officer of DJH Mitten Clarke added: "Our partnership with Lyon Griffiths was a natural move with Nantwich being just up the road from our Stoke-on-Trent HQ. With offices already in Stoke, Manchester, Chester, Leeds, and Walsall, this was a strategic move to further build our presence, ensuring clients across the region benefit from the same exceptional service and business advice powered by technology. Our aim is to further solidify our commitment to providing tailored solutions that empower businesses to succeed."

In the coming months, following a rebrand, Lyon Griffiths will unite under the DJH Mitten Clarke banner, becoming the Nantwich office for the Group.
