Lubbock Fine chartered accountants, the London member firm of worldwide accounting and audit network Russell Bedford International, has admitted two new partners.
Philip Blackburn joined Lubbock Fine in 2002 as a senior tax manager specialising primarily in the domestic tax issues of owner managed businesses. Due to the firm’s international client base, Phil’s responsibilities have since developed and now also include advising both personal and corporate clients upon various international tax matters.
Lee Facey is true homegrown talent, having joined the firm as an ACA graduate trainee in 1997, Lee now acts for a wide range of commercial and professional clients and is closely involved with the recruitment, training and development of the firm’s audit and accounting staff.
Lubbock Fine managing partner Geoff Goodyear said: “Both Phil and Lee have quickly become invaluable members of our team. It is very satisfying that we are able to recognise their talent and reward their significant contributions to the development of our firm.”

Russell Bedford International was established in 1983 by a group of medium-sized independent accounting practices aiming to counter the market dominance of the major multi-national accounting firms.
Russell Bedford is now a closely-connected global association of independent accounting and business consultancy firms in key locations around the world, and is represented by some 200 offices in more than 70 countries in Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific.
All Russell Bedford affiliates are well-established firms offering international business advice and services to local and multinational clients. Most provide a full range of services comprising accounting, auditing, tax advice, general business guidance and financial consulting. In addition, many have specialist expertise in particular fields, such as international taxation or information technology.
