Clearwater International advises on Palatine’s investment in BK Plus

Clearwater International has advised on Palatine’s investment in BK Plus, a Midlands headquartered accountancy firm.

David Baldwin and Shaun Knight, former directors of the accountancy group Baldwins, embarked on their entrepreneurial journey with BK Plus in February 2021. Their extensive experience and expertise in acquiring, integrating and growing accountancy firms, accumulated over years of dedicated service, laid the groundwork for the remarkable success BK Plus has achieved in just over two years.

In this short time, the firm has established a strong presence having completed 12 acquisitions, with over ten offices and approaching 300 staff. Initially focusing on its roots in the Midlands, with offices in Blackheath, Bromsgrove, Dudley, Solihull, Uttoxeter, Warwick, and Wolverhampton. BK Plus has recently extended its footprint across the UK, with offices in locations including Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Halifax, Oldham, and Stoke.

BK Plus will be able to benefit from Palatine’s expertise in strategic buy-and-build and their industry-leading approach to sustainability, which has been central to their value enhancement strategy for more than a decade.

With Palatine’s backing, BK Plus is set to further its mission of providing local services to local people, all while being supported by a proactive and aligned group.
