Dedicated to delivering a first class client service
Dean Statham was established in the 1880’s and today we continue to build on our enviable reputation for providing excellent advice and first class service to our business and personal clients alike.
All of our Partners have one common denominator – they are all “Big 4 firm” trained but have chosen to run their own medium sized firm where the Partner/Client contact is much greater and more personal.
In addition, all of our Partners are qualified Chartered Accountants.
