Jayesh Bakhda

Senior Audit Manager

"Integrity, respect and striving to produce work of the highest quality, are the principles that have built my career. Coupled with my technical ability, I have excelled in providing clients with services of the highest calibre."

After graduating from the University of Southampton with a degree in Accountancy and Economics, I worked for a mid-tier firm in the city of London. I qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 1991.

During more than 25 years in practice, I have gained significant experience in all areas of accounting, auditing, and taxation as well as specialist consulting and advisory.

I joined Lawrence Grant in January 2022 as an Accounts and Audit Manager. I enjoy working with owner-managed businesses and specialise in dealing with large complex audits. I have a unique wealth of experience which is drawn upon to assist clients.

The firm

According to the Partners at Lawrence Grant, “Jayesh has taken the audit department to another level with his premium knowledge which has helped us to take on complex cases. We are very lucky to have him with us.”


I am a family man with one son. I enjoy traveling, reading, and whenever I have free time to solve chess puzzles on chess.com.

What is your favourite book and why?

“To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee. I read this book at school and I still regard it as a classic. I still remember the book’s exploration of the moral nature of human beings, that is whether people are essentially good or essentially evil.

What is your favourite film and why?

“My Cousin Vinny” is one of the funniest and sharpest comedies. The famous line from the movie for me was “Perhaps the laws of physics cease to exist on your stove.”

Who most inspires you?

It goes without saying that my parents because of their hard-work, honesty and living within their means. Other than my parents it would be Mahatma Gandhi who practiced the principle of Satyagraha, in Sanskrit meaning “holding onto truth”. I was also inspired by his practice of non-violence.
