Russell Brennan Keane has merged with PGL, a long-established accountancy practice in Clonskeagh, Dublin 14.

The combined entities will have revenue of in excess of €12.5m, a team of 17 partners with 170 professionals and support staff across four offices.

The merged firm will trade as Russell Brennan Keane.

David Gleeson, managing partner, Russell Brennan Keane, said: “We are extremely proud of the footprint we have developed in Dublin. This new chapter is the latest part of a growth strategy as the firm continues to combine talent and resources to address the needs of our increasingly diverse client-base.”

He continued: “This merger with PGL enables us to significantly increase our presence in the Dublin market and we are looking forward to providing an enhanced service offering to PGL clients.”

“PGL are delighted to announce the merger of our practice with that of Russell Brennan Keane to form one of Ireland’s top 10 accounting practices,” added Declan Lernihan, managing partner at PGL.

“This merger gives us access to significant, well regarded and widespread professional experience, offering clients audit, tax and accounting services in addition to corporate finance, HR support and IT consultancy services. It also gives access to a wider geographical spread in Ireland through offices in Athlone and Roscommon and worldwide through the Leading Edge Alliance. We believe that the client-focused ethos of both firms offers real advantages to our partners, staff and clients.”
