BUSINESS OBJECTIVES ACHIEVED

together

When a crisis hits, you need strong, practical and immediate advice. The team at Forbes prides itself on providing solutions and advice in all manner of crisis situations, including (for example):

  • Threatened or actual strike action;
  • Threats from parents to individual teachers;
  • Adverse publicity – both locally and nationally;
  • Serious and/or fatal accident or injury to pupils, parents or staff;
  • Health and Safety Prosecutions;
  • Failures in leadership;
  • Actual or threatened legal action against the establishment.

All of our education clients are provided with this service; we provide emergency contact details for a senior member of the education team as a matter of course, ensuring immediate advice. The Education team at Forbes is made up of expert lawyers across a wide range of legal disciplines, enabling us to react quickly with specialist advice to any situation. We assist our clients from start to finish in a crisis situation, often working directly from our client’s premises to help you to manage your way through the storm. Our advice in these situations is holistic and practical; we focus on the required solution rather than the simple legal answer to the situation and will also assist directly in press relations where necessary. The unique service we provide to our clients in these situations is a key part of the Forbes' offering; we hope you never need it, but when you do you are in safe hands.
