Investing in our people: Will Abell promoted to partner

Will has seen continued growth and success throughout his time at Gerald Edelman. After graduating in 2015 from Newcastle University’s ‘Flying Start’ Programme in collaboration with PwC, Will joined the Big Four firm in their assurance department in Cardiff. In late 2016, Will qualified as an ICAEW Chartered Accountant and started his Gerald Edelman journey in the Firm’s growing Corporate Finance department.

Since then, Will has advised many businesses of different sizes and sectors across many practice areas. Will’s primary areas of expertise include buy-side transaction advisory, financial due diligence, business valuations and IPO and capital markets support.

Will’s appointment brings the total number of partners in the Corporate Finance team at Gerald Edelman to three.

Commenting on his appointment, Will Abell said, “I am delighted to join the partnership at Gerald Edelman, which has been a long-term ambition of mine. Over the past couple of years, we have been building an exceptional Corporate Finance team at the Firm, proven by our recent win at the South East Dealmakers Awards for Best Transaction Services Team. I’ve enjoyed every moment of my time at Gerald Edelman and I’m incredibly excited to see where the future will take us.”

Gerald Edelman is delighted to welcome Paul Twydell and Paul Attridge as partners in the Firm’s tax team.

A prize-winning Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser, Paul Twydell brings a wealth of experience to the team in corporate tax matters with over 20 years’ experience in the profession. Having trained at a top 10 firm and with a wealth of experience in firms of a similar size to Gerald Edelman, Paul can bring a clear understanding of our clients’ needs and requirements as well as providing technical insight to the rest of the tax team.  Paul joins following a short career break after leaving Simmons Gainsford as partner at the end of 2023.

Paul brings his specialisms in international corporate tax matters, transactional tax, employee share schemes and research and development tax credits together with a deep knowledge of how best to assist clients in the creative industries, technology and property sectors.

Commenting on his appointment, Paul Twydell said, “I am very excited to be joining Gerald Edelman for this new chapter of my career and can’t wait to get started.  What attracted me to Gerald Edelman was its long-term growth objectives whilst staying true to its partnership model and firm commitments to Diversity, Equality and Inclusion together with its focus on prioritising mental wellbeing.”

Paul Attridge, a Chartered Tax Adviser and Trusts and Estates Practitioner brings nearly two decades of experience to the team in a range of tax matters to benefit owner-managed businesses, their owners and high net worth individuals. Paul has a wealth of experience in a variety of firms including those in the mid-tier and top 10. Paul will work with our clients to bring solutions to both corporate and individual tax issues that will both improve their business and their family life. Paul joins us from Azets where he was a regional Tax Partner.

Commenting on his appointment, Paul Attridge said, “I am excited to be joining Gerald Edelman for this next stage of my career and I am looking forward to meeting the whole team and starting work on a wide range of clients.  A mid-tier partnership environment is where I can really use my strengths and I was very impressed by Gerald Edelman’s focus on positive interactions with clients, colleagues and the wider community.”

Carl Lundberg, CEO at Gerald Edelman added “Will has worked closely alongside me since joining the Firm and has played a huge part in the department’s growth and success over the years since he joined. I am delighted to be welcoming him to the partnership, which is thoroughly deserved.

I am also delighted to have Paul Twydell and Paul Attridge join our leadership team. Their proven track record and strong leadership skills will be instrumental in driving our continued success.”
