i decided to add the word 'firm' after consultancy because that is the term we use in the UK and consultancy doesn't seem to go with provider.

(full) service consulting company


Explanation:
'consulting company' is a standard term everywhere (except perhaps the UK). Many companies that provide consulting also advertise themselves as 'full service [field] consulting companies'. You could alos use 'service company and service provider'. I assume that the text is part of a PR text, referring to a specific company, and thus you want to avoid awkward constructions.
