SOUTHAMPTON legend Matt Le Tissier has helped law firm, Eric Robinson Solicitors open a new office in Winchester.

Eric Robinson is sharing the base on Milland Road, Bar End, with Asset Management Financial Advisers.

Catherine Maxfield, managing partner of Eric Robinson Solicitors, said: “We are delighted to be embarking on this new venture in such a beautiful and historic location. The opening of our sixth office in Hampshire is part of an exciting year for us as we celebrate our Golden Anniversary.

“Fifty years may seem like a mere moment in time when arriving in a town such as Winchester, but it is something we are very proud of.”

Peter Davis, operations director of Asset Management Financial Advisers, which also has offices in Southampton and Bishop’s Waltham, said: “We were quite overwhelmed by the turnout of both clients and members of the local business community who came to congratulate us.

“We started talking with Eric Robinson Solicitors about a shared office in the middle of last year, and the fact things have moved forward so efficiently and gone so well is proof that we have made the right decision for both parties.”
