Independent accountancy firm expands headcount and office to cope with growth

An independent accountancy and business advisory firm has expanded its operation in London following a significant business wins.

Johnston Carmichael LLP has secured a larger office in the City to support its continued growth – just over two years after opening its first premises in the Capital.

The 50 sq m hub is the result of a period of sustained new client work, including recent merger support of two US insurance companies, and the mobilisation of a multi-million pound digital programme in the banking sub-sector.

The London team has also bolstered its financial services offering with the additions of Guy Broad and Mehvish Ali and is looking to fill three further roles to meet growing demand.

The expansion is being led by Ewen Fleming, financial services partner, who joined Johnston Carmichael in 2019 and has over 30 years’ experience in financial services in both industry and advisory roles.

Ewen said: “The expansion of our London office has the potential to be a real game changer for our operation in the City. “The new premises will support ongoing growth and our presence here brings us closer to many important clients based in England and Wales.

“Our larger office premises will also support the attraction of more talent to the firm and allow us to host clients at our office in the heart of the Square Mile.”

When Johnston Carmichael LLP announced the opening of its previous London office in 2019, it was the first premises the firm had opened outside Scotland since it was established more than 80 years ago.

The firm recently announced it is joining global accounting, audit and advisory network Moore Global, which has 30,000 staff across 640 offices in 110 countries. Johnston Carmichael’s association with Moore Global will provide its people and clients with access to Moore’s international expertise and experience.
