Tax partner Louise Somerset said: “We were thrilled to see so many people at our launch and to have the opportunity to introduce our clients and professional contacts to colleagues from Smith & Williamson who provide a comprehensive range of financial services and expertise to businesses as well as private clients and who support our work here in Cheltenham. “We look forward to working closely with the local business and professional community and building our team in Cheltenham where we have a loyal and growing client base.”

It is a unique town with particular needs from tax and financial advisers. We have been made very welcome as a firm and we look forward to developing our ties with the local community.”
