Graduate recruitment

Forbes offers the best of both worlds. If you are looking for a "city" practice without the everyday hassles of travelling to and working in the "big city", then Forbes could be for you. One of the largest practices in the North, we have 44 partners, 8 offices, 315 staff and a reputation for being progressive and forward-looking.

The firm has a broad based practice dealing with both commercial and private client work and can, therefore, provide a varied and exciting training contract. We are, however, especially noted for excellence in our business law; civil litigation; insurance; crime; family and employment departments. We have a number of Higher Court advocates and the firm holds many Legal Service Commission Franchises.
