Leading regional chartered accountants, business advisers and financial planners Lovewell Blake has announced the appointment of two new partners: Mary Schofield and Leigh Thurston.
Mary Schofield trained and qualified with one of the big four firms in the Thames Valley. After spending one year in the industry sector she then returned to a professional firm for a further four years. After a career break, she joined the tax team at Lovewell Blake in November 2008, specialising in corporation and international tax issues, in particular advising on capital allowances, research and development claims and issues associated with doing business overseas. She is based between the firm’s Norwich and Lowestoft offices.
Leigh Thurston joined Lovewell Blake as a trainee in 2004. Initially based at the firm’s Halesworth office, he now splits his time between its Thetford and Ely offices. He works with a wide variety of clients ranging from private individuals to owner-managed businesses, and has a specialist knowledge of various accounting software packages. He is treasurer of the Diss Business Forum.
Welcoming the pair as partners, senior partner Paul Briddon said, “Mary has brought considerable experience and specialist tax expertise to the firm, while Leigh has played a key role in expanding our business in Thetford, as well as in establishing our Ely office since 2016.
“They are both excellent ambassadors for the firm and good examples of our commitment to career development. The partners are delighted to welcome them, and look forward to them making a significant contribution to the partnership.”
