Monahans merger with O’Hara Wood creates vibrant accountancy firm

By Anita Jaynes on 11 November, 2016

Independent west of England-based chartered accountancy group Monahans, has merged with O’Hara Wood Chartered Accountants, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year.

Since its formation in 1990, O’Hara Wood’s focus has been on providing a friendly and straight forward service with an attention to detail that has earnt them an enviable reputation. From their offices in the centre of Bath and Melksham they have built a loyal client base across the South West and beyond.

This merger has solidified a historic link between the two firms. One of the principals of O’Hara Wood, Adrian Wood, who sadly passed away earlier this year, originally trained at Monahans’ Trowbridge office. Adrian’s family and surviving business partner Laura Green have given the merger their full support, as it was very much Adrian’s wish that this should come to fruition.

Monahans partner Martin Longmore said: “We have known O’Hara Wood for many years, and they are a firm with a very similar ethos to our own.  Monahans have just celebrated our first decade in Bath, and I am very much looking forward to starting our second decade with Laura Green and her team, and working with them for many years to come.

“The merger will make us one of the largest accountancy firms in Bath, and the local knowledge and relationships that we collectively bring together will enable us to deliver service that is second to none to the city and its environs.”

Laura Green who joins Monahans as a partner from O’Hara Wood said: “I am delighted with the completion of the merger between O’Hara Wood and Monahans. On a personal level, having been a part of O’Hara Wood for 11 years, I feel this is positive move for our team as a whole and we are looking forward to the benefits we will be able to provide our clients through our expanded service capabilities, without losing the personal touch our clients have come to expect from us.”
