Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP establishes new family business specialist team
Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB) has announced the establishment of a specialist team dedicated to supporting family businesses.
AAB currently works with over 1,000 family businesses, amounting to 75 per cent of the firm’s SME client base. The new dedicated team has been formed to support this client base with a central hub of knowledge and experience of the complex financial and business advisory needs of families, both business and personal.
The team will be headed up by AAB’s Edinburgh managing partner Lyn Calder, supported by a team of nine specialists from across the firm, including tax directors Lynn Wilson and Stuart Petrie, who are based in Aberdeen.
Ms Calder said: “At AAB our very first client was a family business and for over 30 years we have continued to work with family businesses across multiple sectors ranging from fishing to oil and gas, and from hospitality to construction and property. As a result, we have extensive knowledge and experience in this space across the firm.
“Recognising that family businesses are unique, and that they require a considered approach, coupled with a different way of thinking, we are delighted to have established our core family business team.
“This central resource will ensure that our clients continue to receive a first-class service, aiding day-to-day operations in addition to potential future growth, which goes above and beyond core business compliance. Ultimately our role is to use our experience to add value to their businesses and ensure they succeed and prosper.”
