BKL welcomes Alan Heywood & Company with merger

We’re pleased to announce that Alan Heywood & Company have merged with BKL.

Alan Heywood & Company (AH & Co), also based in North London, have had a strong heritage since their establishment in 1986. They are leading experts and advisers in music, media and entertainment industries.

Through combining with AH & Co, BKL are building on their existing, well-established client base in the music, media and entertainment industries and enabling further growth as specialists in these sectors. This is part of BKL’s strategy to broaden and deepen their expertise as advisers to specific business sectors. Other key sectors include property and construction, financial services and not-for-profit.

As of Monday, 4th March, AH & Co’s team have moved into BKL’s office.

BKL, with AH & Co, becomes a team of over 270 people including 27 partners. This follows recent successful mergers of chartered accountants Landau Baker and commercial finance specialists CFPro last year.

This also builds on BKL’s growth at partner level in 2023, where two new audit partners were appointed: Nick Bishop, who was internally promoted; and Geeta Morgan, who joined from Mazars. Duncan Hardy, BKL’s Chief Digital Officer since 2019, was also appointed as a partner in 2023; as was Barbara Spurrier, founder of CFPro.

Lee Brook, our CEO, says:

“Alan Heywood and his team have a stellar reputation for excellent client care and specialist support across music and entertainment. Just as importantly, they’re a great bunch of people. We’re excited to have them join forces with us.

We look forward to working closely together under one roof to give clients the trusted personal service that they’re used to, while continuing to invest in our people and our community.”

Alan Heywood, Partner and Founder of AH & Co, said:

“We’re delighted to be coming together with BKL. We’ve enjoyed getting to know Lee and the team, and seeing how superbly they support growth among their clients and each other.

We have always prided ourselves on building strong personal relationships with our clients and listening carefully to their needs. Now, as clients of BKL, they will continue to get a tailored, professional service while benefiting from a greater variety of specialisms.”
