DJH Mitten Clarke acquires Manchester firm Lloyd Piggott

July 2021

Russell Bedford member firm DJH Mitten Clarke has announced its second acquisition of 2021, as it adds Lloyd Piggott Chartered Accountants to its group. The move firmly places the firm in the North-West, provides a springboard into Central Manchester, and the opportunity to grow its client base further in the region.

DJH Mitten Clarke Executive Director, Scott Heath said “It has always been a personal ambition to open a substantial Manchester City Centre office and we started to make progress taking space within WeWork in Spinningfields, but then the pandemic hit. Our conversations with the team at Lloyd Piggott opened up a new opportunity that is right for our business, and more importantly our team.”

He continued, “When bringing two firms together, it’s always critical to make decisions based on culture and ours with Lloyd Piggott are very much aligned; they’re honourable, they’re ambitious and above all, they’re passionate about people and the community.”

Lloyd Piggott’s Sue Redmond, added, “Since our story began over 125 year ago, we’ve always looked out for new partnerships and innovative thinking, and this is why we’ve been successful. Although our past is important to us, it’s our future that counts, so it is crucial that we seize great opportunities at the right moment to carry on moving forward.”

“DJH Mitten Clarke bring with them a number of specialist services, such as: capital allowances, R&D, wealth management and commercial & residential funding, along with group services such as marketing, learning and development and recruitment. Ultimately, this will enhance the advice and support we offer our clients.”

Sue added, “Our aim is to create the very best place to work and the new partnership will also allow investment in wellbeing, training and social programmes; all key to us working together as a happy team.”

St. George’s House will remain home for the Lloyd Piggott team, however as of 4th October 2021, they will take on the name DJH Mitten Clarke, becoming the firm's Manchester office.

Sue will continue to lead the Manchester team, alongside Tax Director, Paula Abbott. Lindsey Shepherd will also join the office from DJH Mitten Clarke, creating continuity for the firm's existing North-West clients.

The latest partnership follows the acquisition of Chester’s Morris & Co in April this year.
