We’re system led but people driven

As founding directors, Gail Bainbridge and Carol Lewis know first hand the challenges faced by many businesses. That personal experience puts Bainbridge Lewis in the perfect position to help you.

“From day one back in 2010 we have passionately believed that what gives us the edge is a genuine desire to move our clients forward. We want you to succeed every bit as much you do – and will go that extra mile to ensure that it becomes a reality.”

A fine pedigree

We both come from formal accounting backgrounds so to some extent, the number crunching will undoubtedly be the same. However, what we bring to the table is more than that. Our experience of working with hundreds of small businesses has taught us a thing or two. Keen to help you introduce more efficient processes and use whatever software technology arms us with the right information, we prefer to spend our time turning data into insight and using that to provide an advisory, not just reporting service. Refer to What we do to read more about the types of service we and our team offer.

What good is a statement crammed with figures if it isn’t accompanied by real insight and clarity that allows you to make an informed decision about the direction you need to take? Similarly we’re not advocates of the annual health check and prefer to be available when you need us. We live in a world where you have to adapt and do so quickly.

Meet the team

Locally involved

Not only are we committed to our clients (some of whom have been with us from the beginning) but we want to actively participate in the community around Brighton. Gail is a trustee and treasurer for Love Is All We Need and runs Time2Give whilst Carol serves as President for Brighton & Hove Chamber of Commerce.

Get in touch so we can arrange a good time to chat through the areas you need help with. We’re adept at spotting where and how we can make you more efficient but whatever the problem, be assured that we won’t bombard you with jargon or technicalities. Our job is offer clarity not further confusion.
