EQ Accountants appoints new consultant


A highly respected and experienced business adviser who led the growth of one of Scotland’s leading law firms, has been appointed consultant to accountancy, tax and consultancy specialists, EQ Accountants LLP.

Craig Nicol, former managing partner of Thorntons Law LLP, will join EQ in August to focus on supporting the firm in its growth ambitions and enthusing the next generation of advisers. He will use his extensive professional experience to help develop EQ’s partners and staff while providing a new network of contacts and prospects to aid in the continued growth of the business.

David Morrison, Managing Partner of Dundee, said: “We are delighted to have Craig join us as he has been a professional friend of the firm for many years. His experience and contacts within the business world are exceptional and he will be able to help us develop our network and relationships across Scotland. We have an exceptional team of people and Craig will help energize the team, just as he did in his time at Thorntons, enabling us to capitalize on the growing demand for our business advisory services.

Over the past five years, EQ has achieved growth of over 28% and has seen a surge in key tax and industry advisory and business advisory engagements, most recently with significant demand for succession planning and of the exit. Craig led Thorntons Law through a period of substantial growth and is well placed to support EQ as they continue to build on their recent success.

Craig added: “I have known EQ for a long time and have worked on several assignments with them during my time at Thorntons. I have always been very impressed with the levels of customer service they provide and am delighted to join the company at a time when they have achieved significant growth and have tremendous opportunities in the period ahead. I look forward to working with the team and playing a part in the next stage of success at EQ.
