Family firm Lamont Pridmore is again recognised nationally for its achievements.


Lamont Pridmore, the Cumbria-based family firm of chartered accountants, tax experts and business advisers, has just been announced as a finalist in the “Most Innovative Small to Medium sized Firm in the UK” an award sponsored by the 2020 Group.

Judges looked for firms that:

  • Add significant value to its clients
  • Improve client focus, effectiveness and innovation
  • Win new clients
  • Improve its competitive advantage by changes in its systems and workflows


The 2020 Membership Group is the leading membership organisation for progressive accountants and tax professionals in the United Kingdom and Ireland.  2020 Group members are continually looking for ways to assist their clients to grow their business, save them time and make them more money.  


Finalist in the “Most Innovative Small to Medium sized Firm in the UK” is just the latest accolade for Lamont Pridmore, which recently joined the top 100 firms in the UK, was the first chartered accountancy firm in Cumbria to achieve ‘Investor in People’ status and is the holder of a National Training Award, given to just 50 winners in the UK each year.

Chief executive of the firm Graham Lamont said: “We are so lucky to have such a highly skilled and experienced team of people who are passionate about client service and helping clients to do well by adding real value to their business and personal lives. Our philosophy is to develop long-term relationships with our clients rather than just become focused on one particular transaction.”

Karl Burrell – Managing Director of the Barrow in Furness office said “We have helped a lot of our clients through the recent difficult economic times, saving some from bankruptcy and improving their profits massively – some by an incredible 90%! Through positive word of mouth, other businesses have heard about our performance and this has led them to us.”

Lamont Pridmore does all the things that other firms of accountants do but it is at this point that its higher levels of service really come to the fore by focusing on three areas:


  • Keeping tax liabilities to a minimum
  • Helping clients to make more money, including maximising the value of the business, grooming it for sale or helping to develop a succession strategy
  • Investing wealth wisely and protecting the family and the business


Lamont Pridmore also quantifies the value it adds to its clients’ businesses which in 2010 was more than three times the fees it charges.


The winner will be announced in a glittering awards ceremony later this month in Birmingham.
