Price Bailey have announced the appointment of Richard Grimster as Partner with effect from 1 April 2018, with a total number of 27 Partners across ten offices.
The promotion strengthens one of the firm’s core practice areas; the Tax team has seen significant growth over the last 12 months increasing fees by over 32% to circa £2.7m in total. This has been achieved in part by an increase in headcount of 15% including the appointment of three Tax Managers and a Tax Director last year.
Price Bailey now has a dedicated Tax Partner in each of their main locations, with Richard taking over leadership of the significant Tax offering in Cambridge, drawing from his knowledge of advising family businesses as well as larger corporates on a range of international, capital and transactional taxes which complements our Strategic Corporate Finance offering. The promotion further cements the firms’ commitment for its clients to have access to specialists in tax and other advisory areas.
Martin Clapson, Managing Director, said: “Our firm is growing rapidly in all divisions, including Tax and this success is largely down to our dedicated and enthusiastic people. Richard has shown a great deal of commitment to Price Bailey, this appointment is in recognition of his high level of enthusiasm and technical expertise – he really does care about the firm and its clients. These characteristics are very welcome amongst the Partner team, indeed welcome all around the firm.”
