Tailored approach

To advise you on best outcomes, we need to understand all aspects of what makes your business tick - not just the numbers! We fundamentally believe that deal experience and a multi-disciplinary team are key to achieving the right results and unlike large accountancy firms, the Meridian team has a unique blend of accounting, banking, Board level non-executive directorships, industry and venture capital experience.

We are “hands on advisers” and consequently, the individuals you meet are the people you deal with. As a trusted firm, all the team have a list of transactions that they have personally driven and will encourage you to speak to former clients.

Meridian’s diverse skill sets and team experience gives them an edge in acting for their clients and an unfair advantage over their competition
