Mike Philp, Audit Partner

I am an Audit Partner with a breadth of client experience ranging from owner managed businesses and private equity backed companies to listed groups. I am passionate about understanding my clients’ businesses and helping management, the company and investors succeed. 

I have strong technical expertise, including accounting under UK GAAP, IFRS and US GAAP. One of the particular skills I bring is my experience and ability to ensure first year audits and audit transitions result in minimum disruption to my clients’ businesses. 

A large part of my career has been spent advising my clients on the journey from private equity ownership to listed, drawing on my experience in debt and equity transactions, UK IPOs, M&A and due diligence. For my private equity backed clients on their lifecycle journey, I support value creation plans and provide exit readiness feedback to benefit both management and investors. 

I work with clients across multiple sectors spanning housebuilding and construction, automotive, retail, life sciences, technology, business services and financial services. 

Outside of work I like to spend time with my family and enjoy sport, which is increasingly an activity from the sidelines rather than participation. I’m a Doncaster Rovers fan which is probably an indicator of my home town.
