Working with the Smith Cooper team on our business merger last year was an outstanding success. Their understanding of our businesses and inevitably complex circumstances was second to none and the quality of advice and depth of insight ensured a highly satisfactory outcome for both parties in the transaction. A very professional outfit which I would without hesitation recommend to other ambitious businesses.

Their commitments when pitching for the work have all been met and they act as a real partner to our business, supporting us all of the way in our continued growth and development. They have been an integral part of our success over recent years and I recommend them without hesitation

Martin always shows a thorough understanding of the complexities and needs we have and expresses a genuine care for our business throughout all aspects of his work. We continually receive a responsive and meticulous service from him and from the rest of the Smith Cooper team.

What sets Smith Cooper apart from the rest is their personalised approach and their ability to make us feel like their most important client. They are approachable, helpful and most importantly knowledgeable. Sarah, Laura and the team at Smith Cooper have provided us with an exceptional level of support, drawing on their own expertise and their extensive network to provide pragmatic and workable solutions to any issues that arise. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Smith Cooper and having recently reappointed them to work with our trust I am looking forward to extending our working relationship for a number of years to come.

We were recommended to use Smith Cooper and are delighted to have become a client for our family tax affairs and corporate accounts. The entire team is knowledgeable, approachable, friendly, supportive of our aims and, most importantly, very proactive. They very quickly understood our family and company dynamic and work alongside us to shape and reach our targets. Everyone at Smith Cooper works hard to create and maintain a genuine working relationship and we feel in extremely safe hands. Who knew that accounts meetings could be such good fun?!

We have been a client of Smith Cooper for the last few years and consider James Bagley and his team to be very trusted advisers who have been outstanding for our business. They continue to provide excellent professional advice on all aspects of our business and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone.

James Delve and his team at Smith Cooper consistently provide us with high quality business advisory, audit and tax services and deal with matters in a very professional and approachable manner. Over the past 7 years they have been key to helping build the success of my business.

We engaged Dan Bowtell and his team because they were personable, knowledgeable, experienced, clearly worked well as a team and their quote was eminently reasonable. From the outset, Dan took responsibility for ensuring the process was managed professionally and efficiently. All prospective buyers were identified and contacted to elicit their interest. As soon as a potential buyer was identified, Dan took control of negotiations and successfully managed to increase the buyer's initial offer by some 20%. Once a deal was agreed Dan managed the process to completion efficiently and dealt expertly with the requirements of different classes of shareholder, leading to a successful deal completion. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dan and his team to any prospective seller.
