Forrester Boyd expands reach with Robsons merger

Forrester Boyd expands in east Yorkshire with Beverley-based Robsons

FORRESTER BOYD has broadened its reach after merging with Beverley-based Robsons.

The merger brings Boyd’s office network to five – covering an area from Skegness to Beverley.

Boyd’s east Yorkshire partner Mike Beckett said the move was “another significant step forward in the on-going expansion of the practice”.

The firm had opened an office in the Hull/east Yorkshire region 18 months ago, at Hessle.

“We saw an opportunity to push our boundaries even further through the merger of our existing east Yorkshire office with the Robsons business and this gives us an opportunity to embark on a serious new business push over the coming years.”

The combined east Yorkshire offices will trade as Forrester Boyd Robson Limited, at the existing Robsons premises. The new firm will be led by a three-man senior management team of Mike Beckett and two Robsons executives, Ian Robson and Roger Worthington.
Robsons has operated in the area since the early 1980s, and has a client base of around 700.

Worthington said: “We carried out due diligence into Forrester Boyd and we were very impressed by their reputation, their capabilities and the relationship they have with their clients”.

Forrester Boyd has 14 partners alongside more than 180 staff at offices at Skegness, Scunthorpe, Louth, its Grimsby headquarters and now Beverley.
