The deal marks DJH’s second takeover of 2021, and will provide the group with an opportunity to grow its client base in the North West.
While Lloyd Piggott will continue to act out of its St George’s House office, as of 4 October 2020 the office will become DJH’s Manchester base.
Scott Heath, executive director at DJH, 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 added that the two group’s cultures “are very much aligned”, which was “critical” in the decision making process.
Sue Redmond will continue to lead the Lloyd Piggott team alongside tax director Paula Abbott, with Lindsey Shepherd, audit director at DJH, joining the operation.
Redmond said: “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.

Ultimately, this will enhance the advice and support we offer our clients.”
