Keval Patel

Business Services Manager

"I aim to anticipate clients' needs in order to deliver more than is expected. I always want to exceed client expectations."

Through understanding my clients’ needs and seeking to gain an in-depth knowledge of their respective businesses, I aim to anticipate their needs in order to deliver more than is expected. This affords me the opportunity to provide guidance on the issues and concerns that really matter to them.

I provide my clients with general business advice and have worked largely with advising clients in the property, retail and services sectors. I always want to exceed client expectations whilst looking to provide added value.

If you’re interested…
I graduated from the University of Birmingham with a degree in Accounting and Finance and worked in a small general practice firm, before joining Gerald Edelman in 2013. Besides advising a wide portfolio of clients on general accountancy matters, I am currently responsible for the bookkeeping department and manage the firm’s cloud accounting services, working alongside partner Deval Patel.
