Lamont Pridmore was established over 100 years ago and despite our age, we are a modern, family run, national award winning practice, led by the same senior management team and partners for the last 25 years.
We combine traditional values with a forward-thinking, innovative approach to the constantly evolving demands of the modern business world, we focus on the future rather than the past and start where other firms finish.
We were the one of the first firms of chartered accountants to achieve Investors in People, and at a recent re-assessment we were described as “a truly world class organisation”. We are one of the UK’s Best Firms to work for and are a National Training Award winner.
Lamont Pridmore is a member of the British Quality Foundation, and regularly benchmarks its performance against the Business Excellence Model.
