At Forbes Solicitors we believe our client's best interests are served not just by steering the case through to a trial, but by actively exploring other means by which the dispute might be resolved.
Court processes can be costly lengthy and stressful, and put the outcome in the hands of a third party. We aim to give control back to the parties. Our lawyers are skilled at spotting the opportunities to find solutions to problems, and using the techniques of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to our client's best advantage.
Robin Stephens is an accredited mediator with ADR Group, who are acknowledged nationally and internationally as a leading authority in mediation and other ADR techniques, and he can act as mediator in disputes throughout the North of England and further afield if required.
The Dispute Resolution Solicitors at Forbes have extensive experience of representing clients at mediations, nearly all of which have resulted in a successful negotiated solution - saving cost and stress for our clients.

Thank you for what you have done for us, it has been a pleasure working with you - and your advice is always clear, practical and makes lots of sense.
The letter of summary has helped me to compile my defence. Without it, I would have floundered. I am very pleased with the professional service that I have received from Mohassan and Manisha.
I have to say that I've never had a better legal service from anyone and am very grateful for your actions in bringing this to a satisfactory conclusion.
