Graeme Finnie, Managing Partner
French Duncan is a long established, award winning, independent firm of chartered accountants and business advisors, headquartered in Scotland and working with clients throughout the UK as well as internationally.
French Duncan was formed way back in 1902 as French & Cowan and has evolved and grown significantly over the last century through a series of amalgamations. Most recently, we merged with Stirling based Macfarlane Gray in November 2012 and are now one of the largest mid-tier accountancy practices in Scotland.
We have six offices in Scotland with 20 partners and over 180 staff and appear in the Accountancy Age Top 100 firms in the UK. French Duncan has key language skills in French, German, Hungarian, Portuguese, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, Urdu with access to most other main languages.
We offer a very wide range of services giving an experienced and independent view to help our clients achieve their goals. With our century old tradition of sharing the challenges our clients face, our philosophy is to really understand your business. Through a partner-led, accessible and hands-on service, we pride ourselves on listening and delivering focussed and creative solutions.
These are exciting times for French Duncan. During the last few years, in very challenging market conditions, we have significantly grown our income and geographic coverage across the central belt. During that period we have recruited a number of high calibre partners and staff and now provide a depth of experience that the smaller firms cannot offer and a personalised service that the bigger firms do not.
