Lamont Pridmore retains position among UK's accountancy elite
Lamont Pridmore, the Cumbria-based family run firm of chartered accountants, tax and business advisers, has again been recognised as one of the UK’s top 100 accountancy practices.
It is the second year that the firm has appeared in leading industry journal Accountancy Age’s annual survey, which lists the country’s top 100 accountancy practices according to factors such as fee income, growth and the fees generated by each partner.
Lamont Pridmore remains the UK’s second fastest-growing small firm for a second year, with a 12.3 per cent increase in fee income whereas on average the top 100 firms experienced a drop of one per cent. It is also one of the top 10 fastest-growing practices in the UK survey as a whole in 2010/11.
Chief executive Graham Lamont said: “To appear in the listing for the first time last year was a wonderful achievement, but to remain in the top 100 and still be one of the UK’s fastest-growing practices is just incredible. I am absolutely delighted.
Chris Lamont, partner and managing director of the firm’s Carlisle office, said: “This is a testament to the hard work and commitment of the fantastic team of people we have here at Lamont Pridmore. Without them, we would not be where we are today.”

Established more than 100 years ago and led by the same management team and partners for the last 20 years, Lamont Pridmore is firmly rooted in Cumbria, with offices throughout the county. Lamont Pridmore was named as one of the top 10 small accounting firms in the UK in 2010 at the Accountancy Age Awards held in London last November.
Lamont Pridmore does all the things that other firms of accountants do but it is at this point that its higher levels of service really come to the fore by focusing on three things:
- Keeping tax liabilities to a minimum;
- Helping clients to make more money, including maximising the value of the business, grooming it for sale or helping to develop a succession strategy;
- Investing wealth wisely and protecting the family and the business.
Lamont Pridmore also quantifies the value it adds to its clients’ businesses which in 2011 is more three times the fees it charges.
