Local accountancy firm Baker Tilly may have lost its name on Monday but it vowed to stay true to its roots while offering the world to clients.

The Grangemouth firm has adopted the RSM name, uniting it with the firm’s 34 other UK locations and the entire RSM network – some 37,500 people in 730 offices across more than 110 countries.

RSM International is the seventh largest global network of independent audit, tax and consulting firms and was the fastest growing top 10 global network last year, posting an 18 per cent increase in revenue to $4.4 billion.

Patrick Norris, RSM Grangemouth office manager and partner, said: “There are two messages we want to get across – it’s business as usual for our existing clients and this change will allow us to work across the entire world.

“Although our name is changing, we will stay true to our roots and maintain the core essence of our business and a strong dedication to our local client base. This will also help us attract staff to our business because people want to work for a globally recognised name like RSM.

“We will be providing all the same services as before and are still dedicated to our existing clients, but we will be looking for more clients who are attracted to the global brand of RSM.”

Laurence Longe, RSM’s UK managing partner, added: ‘Uniting under a common brand presents a unique opportunity for RSM to truly become the first choice adviser to middle market leaders, globally.

“By coming together like this, we will be better able to draw on local knowledge and global expertise from across the network, helping our clients be successful wherever and whenever they expand the international reach of their business.”
