Friends and clients join accountants for firm’s 10th anniversary dinner

March 8, 2019

Bristol independent practice Corrigan Accountants has celebrated a decade in business with a special dinner for past and present members of staff, long-standing clients and friends.

The event, held in the newly refurbished Cooper’s Hall at Bristol Old Vic, marked 10 years since Ed Corrigan left major national practice Baker Tilly after 20 years to start Corrigan Associates - now rebranded as Corrigan Accountants. Having launched with just two people, the firm now employs 20 staff and has doubled its headcount over the past two years.

Ed said: “It was in the depth of the recession back then but the time felt right to offer a more personalised service, along with the advice and support our clients needed to navigate some tough times ahead.

“Most of the clients have gone from strength to strength since those days and we’re now advising many of the fastest growing companies around the region, particularly in the tech sector.”

He said the business had been an early adopter of cloud technology, which had given it a head start on building a practice capable of meeting changing demands.

“There’s still a good future for professional service but firms need to be lean and efficient and geared around the needs of their clients not the other way around,” said Ed.

“Our range of services has grown – we’re dealing with start-ups from inception as well as assisting entrepreneurs sell their businesses at the other end of the business life cycle.

“More than anything we’ve built a great team of people. The last 10 years have flown by but we’re well on the road to becoming the leading independent accountancy practice in Bristol which is a tribute to the hard work of the partners and staff.”
