Clarke Nicklin wins 2020 International Firm of the Year award

Clarke Nicklin has earned rich reward for a global business expansion strategy by taking the top international award at a prestigious industry dinner!

The firm won the 2020 International Firm of the Year award from the 2020 Innovation Group, the leading membership organisation for progressive accountants in the UK, representing over 1300 member firms.

Snooker legend Steve Davies presented Clarke Nicklin partners Steve Humphries and Andrew Baggott with the trophy at the annual 2020 Group conference and awards dinner in Birmingham.

The 2020 Annual Innovation Awards celebrate success and achievements across the accounting profession with particular emphasis on innovation and creativity.

22Trophy sponsor 2020 Tax Protection representative James Howell commented: “Clarke Nicklin has demonstrated great breadth and depth of accountancy, tax and financial services expertise for its clients internationally this year, which has contributed to impressive growth for the firm.”

Clarke Nicklin’s work has included advising:





  • clients wishing to set up businesses in the US, including cross-border tax planning
  • the restructuring of a UK business to allow the set up of an Australian sister company
  • Swiss residents on investment strategies
  • clients relocating to Dubai on investment and retirement planning
  • Chinese residents on setting up a UK operation

Clarke Nicklin partner Steve Humphries said: “The last 12 months have marked a step change in performance and ambition for the firm. Our taxation and financial planning arms have expanded by 35% in turnover and staffing levels, expansion which has allowed us to further develop our international trading links and offer clients resident in the UK and overseas first rate advice. Looking to meet the increasing international needs of our clients is a key part of our growth strategy for 2011 and beyond.”
