Mr Mellor said: "Everyone needs good advice to achieve financial security and we help to guide our clients through the financial maze to make the right choice for them.
"Achieving our twentieth anniversary is an important milestone for the business and we are really proud of our progress.
"ut we couldn't have done it without our clients. We are pleased so many of them, along with colleagues from professional practices in Leek, were able to join us to mark the occasion."
