Law firm Paris Smith has branched out into Winchester.
The property at 9 Parchment Street will be home to more than 35 solicitors and support staff.
The High Sheriff of Hampshire, Lady Louisa Portal MBD DL, braved the rain and officially opened the doors of the new offices which have been designed and fitted out by Winchester-based Warrens Office.
Stuart Allen partner and expert in property finance and commercial property, and finance partner Huw Miles will head up the new office.
Stuart Allen said: “It was only a matter of time before we opened a new office in the very heart of this city”.
Paris Smith is sponsoring the Christmas tree at Winchester Cathedral’s Christmas ice rink, the Christmas tree in the square, and this year’s panto, Jack and the Beanstalk, at the Theatre Royal. It is also sponsoring next year’s Cocktail Week with Winchester BID.
