Shaw Gibbs and Martin and Company have a shared dedication to delivering expertise in accountancy and tax advisory services. The merger brings expertise from Martin and Company in the farming and agricultural sector, landed estates and private client spaces.

“We are thrilled to welcome Martin and Company to the Shaw Gibbs family,” said Shaw Gibbs chief executive officer Peter O’Connell.

“Their reputation for excellence and commitment to client success perfectly complement our values and mission. Together, we will continue to deliver the high-quality services and innovative solutions our clients expect, while expanding our reach to better serve businesses, estates and individuals throughout the region.”

The combination of Martin and Company’s team with Shaw Gibbs’ existing base will strengthen the wider firm’s ability to provide tailored solutions that address the evolving needs of clients across industries.

“We are excited about the opportunities this merger brings for our team and our clients,” said Martin and Company partner Seamus McLaughlin.

“Joining forces with Shaw Gibbs allows us to leverage their extensive resources and expertise while retaining the personalised approach and deep client relationships that have been the hallmark of Martin and Company for more than 50 years.”
