Accountancy firm joins the Tech City revolution

ACCOUNTANCY firm Blick Rothenberg yesterday became the latest professional services firm to join the growing technology hub in London’s east end.

The dedicated office at the Silicon Roundabout site will service the tech start-ups attracted to the site. The firm says a team based there will provide specialist tax and accounting support.

On Monday law firm Taylor Wessing said it will set up a dedicated team at the site.

The project was boosted last month when Google announced it has signed a ten-year lease on a Tech City property. It is hoped large companies like Google will help to spawn an ecosystem where firms emerge to provide support services.

Tech City, which encompasses developments at Old Street and Stratford, is also home to promising start-ups including Last FM, Huddle, and SoundCloud.
