BKL welcomes Landau Baker with merger

Insights, News

We’re pleased to announce that Landau Baker Ltd Chartered Accountants have merged with BKL.

Landau Baker are a firm of over 20 people including two directors. Like BKL, they have personal and business clients with a variety of backgrounds. With a history going back over 50 years, Landau Baker have been based in Hendon, North London, not far from our office in Finchley.

As an inclusive, growing business, BKL are always open to opportunities to join with fellow professionals who share our values. We’ve known Landau Baker for many years; they have a strong dedication to excellence in how they support clients and they take pride in their specialisms, which include auditing and other services for academies and schools.

Combining with Landau Baker under one roof makes BKL bigger in numbers: over 230 people including 23 partners. This follows the merger of FSPG Chartered Accountants with BKL in April 2022, and the appointment of two new audit partners (Nick Bishop and Geeta Morgan) in April 2023. That strength in numbers means that as a business, we will be able to invest more in our people, our communities and our environment – all things that are important to us as a sustainable business.

Landau Baker’s team have moved into the BKL office. They will continue trading under the Landau Baker name.

Lee Brook, our CEO, says:

“Landau Baker’s commitment to guiding and supporting ambitious clients, with their firmly established status as education sector specialists, mean that we’re delighted to be joining forces with them.

We’re looking forward to working together to provide excellent service to an even greater range of clients, while continuing to invest in our people and our community.”

Jake Lew, Partner from Landau Baker, says:

“We’re excited to be coming together with BKL. We’ve known them for a number of years and have always been impressed with their people, culture and quality of their clients. We’re looking forward to getting to know our new colleagues.

“Although Landau Baker’s workplace will change, our clients will continue receiving a professional and personal service, with the added benefit of broader specialist experience. We look forward to supporting them from our new office.”
