Norfolk-based firm Larking Gowen has expanded further into East Anglia with the acquisitions of Martin Wright & Co in Colchester and Unica Ltd in Claydon near Ipswich.
Martin Wright will become a partner with Larking Gowen, while Robin Shore will continue as a director of Unica and take on the new role of director of corporate tax within Larking Gowen. The 14 staff members of the two practices will also transfer to Larking Gowen.
Larking Gowen is ranked 43rd in Accountancy's Top 60. These two acquisitions bring its total number of offices to nine, staff to 245, and should increase turnover by about 10% in the first year.
Managing partner Bob Rose said the acquisitions would 'give us a good start on the road to increasing our present client base throughout East Anglia.'
