Accountancy and business advisory firm BDO LLP has grown its tax and audit operations with the appointment of three new partners.
Liam O’Doherty is a tax partner in the firm’s Manchester office, where he will utilise his “significant experience” of advising real estate clients as well as supporting businesses in other sectors with specialist tax advice.
Matthew Sewell also joins as a tax partner. He is a partner in the firm’s Bristol office and will provide tax services to multinational businesses in the South West, focusing on international tax services and supporting in-house finance and tax functions.
Peter Smithson joins BDO as an audit partner in the Technology and Media (TM) team, bringing with him 17 years’ experience in the sector. He is based at the firm’s Baker Street office in London.
In February this year, BDO announced its merger with Moore Stephens LLP was complete, which the firm said makes it the UK’s “number one” accountancy and advisory firm focused on entrepreneurially-spirited, mid-sized businesses. Since the start of 2019, the firm has appointed nine new partners spanning their London and regional offices.
Paul Eagland, managing partner at BDO, said: “We are now three months into our merger with Moore Stephens LLP and I’m thrilled that we are continuing to grow and attract great people into the business.
“Each new partner will be a welcomed and invaluable addition. Their appointments add to our ability to help our high-growth and ambitious clients capitalise on the global opportunities available to them.”
