Among topics discussed were how to increase competition in the audit market and why choosing a firm with 'chartered' status should be seen as a better option for clients.

Mitchell Charlesworth has a long established relationship with the ICAEW and played an important role in its foundation.

On 25th January 1870, Charles Hackett Mitchell (one of Mitchell Charlesworth’s founders) was one of the “14 gentlemen engaged in accountancy" who met to establish the Incorporated Society of Liverpool Accountants.  The society was formed to ensure "the protection of the character, status and interests of the accountants of Liverpool and the promotion of honourable practice”.

Several years later, in May 1880, this Liverpool society became one of the five Founding Societies of what is now the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW). In 1885, Charles Hackett Mitchell founded the firm that would eventually become Mitchell Charlesworth.
