Inquesta opens office in Leeds

Forensic accounting and insolvency practice expands across the Pennines

Inquesta opens office in Leeds

Forensic accounting and insolvency practice Inquesta has opened an office in Leeds as it embarks on an ambitious national expansion programme.

The firm has taken space at Princes Exchange, a seven-storey office block in the city centre.

Inquesta has launched its Leeds operation with Tim Keeling as a director in its forensic division and Martin Willock as a senior manager in its insolvency arm.

Further recruitment of support staff and fee earners is expected over the coming months.

Tim is an experienced forensic accountant with a focus on defendant work in cases involving white collar crime, tax fraud, money laundering and proceeds of crime orders.

He was previously a director at Forths Forensic Accountants in Leeds, where he headed the criminal and corporate division.

Martin has nearly 20 years’ experience in the insolvency sector. He has previously worked at firms including Cowgill Holloway, Grant Thornton and Baker Tilly.

Rob Miller, a director and co-founder of Inquesta, which has its head office in Radcliffe, Greater Manchester, said: “We have seen increased demand for our services in Yorkshire and it makes sense to establish a presence in Leeds.

“Tim and Martin are extremely well-connected in the Yorkshire market and beyond, and are great additions to our team as we grow the practice with this new office.

“It marks the first stage of our ambitious strategy to become a national firm and we will certainly be looking to expand the Leeds operation as part of our growth plans.

“Alongside our existing services, we aim to increase the range of niche services we offer, including corporate finance and specialist tax investigations.”

Inquesta celebrated its fifth anniversary in January. Rob founded the practice with co-director Steven Wiseglass. The firm is currently expanding its head office with a £200,000 investment that will enable it to double the size of its workforce based there to 24.
