As you may already know, Peter Crowther is leaving Haggards Crowther to start a well-earned retirement in which golf and regular holidays are certain to figure prominently (to the extent that they weren't already).
That said, Peter is not disappearing altogether, and he remains available to ensure a smooth transition of his clients so that we can continue to look after them to accustomed high standards for many years to come.
Andrew and I joined forces with Pete in 1 September 2005. The merger united our corporate skills with Pete's private client tax skills, and the business has grown from strength to strength ever since. Pete's legacy is a very strong Private Client tax team with (for a practice our size) an incredible range and depth of clients, and a tax focus in the Corporate teams which is such that owner directors receive pragmatic, relevant advice.
All the team, but particularly Andrew, myself and Nicky, wish Peter a happy and enjoyable retirement. If the handicap does not improve a point or two, we will want to know why.
