Cottons Accountants London acquires Roberts & Co.

by | Jul 1, 2022

Cottons are proud to announce the acquisition of West London based accountancy firm, Roberts & Co. as part of its plans to strengthen their presence in the London area.

Twin brothers, David & Phillip Roberts, started their partnership on 1st May 1976 as Roberts & Co and have traded ever since in various locations in West London. Since 1985, they have been primarily located at 136 Kensington Church Street.

Roberts & Co work with SME businesses and private clients mainly in London & Home Counties and surrounding areas, with a big focus on artists, art galleries and service industry businesses within the portfolio.

As part of their plan to retire, it was imperative that the brothers migrated their clients over to a firm that provides the highest of service levels and understands the industry thoroughly.

“Excited to be merging with a progressive and forward looking firm, we feel that our client base is in good hands.” Phillip Roberts, Partner.

“The merging of Roberts & Co with ourselves continues our plans of expanding our presence in London. Their West London location gives us the chance to grow a client base in a different area of London. I am relishing the opportunity to modernise a traditional client base and provide added value through our extended service offering.” Ollie Warne, Cottons London Partner.

Paul Syiem-Clark, Senior Accountant, will continue to work with Cottons and he will be instrumental in the next few months of transition. Paul is a qualified accountant providing high level financial support to a select number of clients.

Ollie adds: “Lastly, a huge thank you to everyone in the wider Cottons family who has helped make this happen. We’ve worked together tirelessly to make the process as smooth as possible for the partners, as they transition towards retirement. I cannot wait to get started on this next stage of our continuous growth.”
