Practice History

Originally formed by Dennis Underwood and Richard Lamb, the Underwood Lamb practice has been established in the Bristol/Bath area since 1959.

Originally based in central Bristol, the practice then moved its main offices to Midsomer Norton near Bath where it was based for many years until moving in 1994 to the current location in Chew Magna in the heart of the picturesque Chew Valley just south of Bristol.

The Underwood Lamb core accountancy practice was run for many years by Andrew Lamb, son of Richard Lamb, alongside a number of other companies bearing the Underwood Lamb brand in areas such as Financial Services, Business Consultancy and Mediation.

In 2003, Andrew Lamb established PKB Underwood Lamb Associates specialising in off-shore taxation. This is an area in which Andrew already had strong affiliations and expertise through work with associates in many European countries through his membership and past presidency of the Association de Brecourt, a pan-European group of accountants and business advisors.

In 2004, the core UK accountancy practice based in Chew Magna passed over to Rod Podger. Rod had been with Underwood Lamb since 1987 and had trained and qualified through the practice and been a client portfolio manager alongside Andrew at the Chew Magna offices for approaching 10 years.

The Practice has a broad and varied client base in terms of type and size but predominantly comprising of family/owner-managed local businesses together with a large number of personal tax return clients. The practice has clients throughout the West Country and the rest of country as well as in the Chew Valley itself.

The practice, its management and staff take a strong interest in the local Chew Valley community assisting a number of voluntary and community groups with their accounting requirements. We are also one of the founding members of the Chew Valley Chamber of Commerce for which we provide office and administrative resources.
