CLIENTS, commercial advisors and professional colleagues joined members of Thrings’ legal and business services teams in the summer sunshine to mark the official opening of its new offices in Romsey.

Leading figures from Hampshire’s thriving business community gathered at the newly-refurbished premises at Stuart Court on the historic Broadlands estate for a reception to celebrate the law firm committing to clients in the county for another decade.

Guests networked over canapés and drinks before taking a guided tour of the new 7,776 sq ft offices with Thrings’ managing partner, Simon Holdsworth, Romsey-based partners Rachel Brooks, Mark Charter, Mary Chant and Sally Pike, and members of the firm’s Agriculture, Commercial, Family and Private Client teams.

Mark Charter said: “Eighteen months ago we made the decision to expand our UK footprint beyond our existing offices in London, Bristol, Bath and Swindon. Since then, we have continued building links with the farming and landed estates communities, enhanced our offering to private clients and strengthened our commercial team to provide clients with a truly integrated legal service.

“Thrings has never been afraid to do things differently, and we are extremely pleased to have moved into premises which will support our future growth plans, provide clients with city-standard commercial facilities in a rural setting and offer staff a new and exciting working environment.”
