Hawksford announces exciting new venture with the opening of its London office

Corporate, Private Client and Fund service provider, Hawksford, has opened its doors in London following the acquisition of the corporate services business from the audit and accountancy practice, SH Landes LLP. Hawksford will provide specialist corporate services from its central London offices on New Oxford Street. The transaction demonstrates Hawksford’s commitment to ensuring that it can provide its clients with first class solutions in key strategic locations, that clients demand.

The acquisition strengthens Hawksford’s current service offering; providing expert administration, accounting and reporting, company secretarial and related back office services to private and corporate clients internationally. The office will remain under the leadership of Steven Landes, a Chartered Accountant with over 30 years’ experience in the international financial sector, having previously working at Ernst & Young before setting up SH Landes in 1993. The London office will provide Hawksford clients and advisers in the UK with convenient access to Hawksford services and support.

Steven Landes commented “I am looking forward to starting our journey as part of the Hawksford group. The collaboration of expertise and providing an international platform for our clients to utilise will place Hawksford at the forefront of the corporate, private client and fund services industry in the UK and internationally.”

Hawksford Group Chief Executive, Michel van Leeuwen is enthusiastic about this next step for Hawksford, adding: “This is an exciting time for Hawksford and this move gives us a strong presence in one of the world's leading international finance centres. It builds on our international expertise to extend our service offering to UK based structures. Drawing on the market leading experience from our new London team, our clients will be able to utilise this new office, allowing them to create flexible structures based on their requirements.”

This acquisition comes just four months after Hawksford acquired Asian based corporate services provider, People & Projects (P&P), and is the seventh acquisition that has been made since Hawksford was backed by private equity house Dunedin.
