Consulting and accounting firm BDO has appointed three new partners. Based in London, Tim Golby, Matthew Clark and Emma Jarvis will help boost the firm’s legal, audit and tax offerings.

Since the start of this year, BDO has welcomed over a dozen externally hired individuals as partners across the firm. The firm is investing in its senior team in order to meet heightened demand, as clients navigate a challenging economic climate and require increasingly complex advice.

Paul Eagland, Managing Partner at BDO, said of the latest appointments, “It is crucial that we have the best and brightest talent within the firm and these appointments are a reflection of that. All three new partners bring fresh expertise and experience to BDO and will be brilliant additions to the team.”

Tim Golby joins BDO’s private client team as a Partner specialising in tax relating to partnerships. Having spent over 20 years advising on complex tax issues, often across multiple jurisdictions, he joins from the law firm Bird and Bird.

Earlier in his career, Golby spent four years with Big Four firm Deloitte and had a brief stint at Arthur Anderson.

Matthew Clark meanwhile arrives from Big Four firm PwC. He boasts over 20 years of experience, including senior leadership positions leading on tax matters relating to UK customs, excise and international trade – and with BDO, he will utilise this expertise as demand for advice in this area is reportedly increasing due to factors including Brexit and the introduction of a new HMRC Customs Declaration system.

Emma Jarvis finally joining the firm as a Partner in audit. Also making the switch from PwC, she similarly brings two decades of experience in the profession, having worked with clients in a number of sectors, including owner-managed and private-equity backed businesses as well as larger listed companies. She will focus on businesses headquartered in the US in her new role.

BDO is the world's fifth largest accountancy and business advisory firm providing services to mid-market businesses within the UK and worldwide. With more than 3,500 people in the UK, the firm generates close to £400 million in revenues across the country.
