Speechly advises BDO

Speechly Bircham has been heavily involved in the merger between Arthur Andersen and much of BDO Binder Hamlyn.

After the BDO Binder Hamlyn partnership ceased to practice on 1 October, the regional offices that were not part of the move entered new alliances with other firms.

Speechlys advised seven of the regional firms. One links up with Grant Thornton and the others join Stoy Hayward, which became part of the BDO International network under the name BDO Stoy Hayward.
