Liberty Corporate Finance is delighted to announce that it has advised the management team of Haines Watts South East on its acquisition by Cooper Parry. Cooper Parry has been backed by Waterland Private Equity (“Waterland”) since December 2022.
The deal sees Cooper Parry add 11 offices across London, the South East, Birmingham and the Midlands to its existing portfolio, increasing its workforce to 1,150. This represents a tripling in size for the firm over the last 12 months since Waterland’s investment.
Cooper Parry has continued to organically grow ahead of market alongside three acquisitions of London-based companies iHorizon and Acclivity (February 2023) and Future Perfect in April 2023. The Haines Watts deal will establish Cooper Parry as the UK’s 11th largest accountancy firm.
