Shipleys LLP is delighted to announce that the tax and accounting division of London-based Mariana UFP LLP, merged with the Firm on 2 March 2020

9 March 2020

The merger sees a small team of corporate and general tax specialists join Shipleys, led by Chartered Tax Adviser Stephen Hanlon. Stephen also joins the Firm’s leadership team.

Commenting on the merger, Stephen said: “Shipleys is a perfect fit for our clients and my colleagues. It has a very similar approach, based on building close and personal long-term relationships as the basis for practical advice and solutions that provide excellent value for money.”

“I’m very excited by the benefits that the merger brings. It’s a great opportunity to tap into a wider range of resources at what is a top UK firm. Shipleys’ membership of AGN International (a global association of separate and independent accounting and advisory businesses) will also help our clients.”

Stephen’s career includes time working at BDO before moving to Ernst & Young as a director in 2009, where he specialised in advising real estate businesses and a wide range of funds. He now also specialises in many SEIS and EIS related issues, R&D tax credits and company share schemes, as well as advising on various reconstructions, reorganisations and M&A transactions.

Shipleys Managing Principal Simon Robinson said: “We are delighted to welcome Stephen and colleagues into the fold. They will definitely add an extra depth and strength to our corporate advisory offering.”
