Our history

Thomson Cooper was formed in 1949 when founding partners T. Hunter Thomson and Harold Cooper acquired a small practice in Dunfermline. The firm has expanded from these small beginnings to its present complement of around 70 staff with branches in Dunfermline and Edinburgh. We are Fife's largest independent accountancy practice to include financial services, insolvency departments and IT/marketing consultancy. The practice has established an impressive and diverse client base throughout central Scotland and beyond. Our clients benefit from -
