Campbell Dallas managing partner Chris Horne said: "Joining Baldwins will allow us to increase our investment in the business, in particular technology, and continue to grow our market share.

"We are firmly focused on the owner-managed business and entrepreneurial market, which is also the area of focus for Baldwins and the wider CogitalGroup, so there is a great deal of common ground in terms of strategy and culture."

"Both firms are widely regarded for their focus on the SME sector, and they are both entrepreneurial, growth-oriented businesses."
