Forbes is a national force in the education sector, currently acting for over 450 educational establishments, including Academy Trusts, Secondary Schools, Further Education Colleges and Local Authorities. Our specialism, partnership approach, "one-stop-shop" service, size of our team, quality of our lawyers and value for money approach is what differentiates us from our competitors.

We have a dedicated Education Department and have developed a comprehensive range of legal services and solutions focused specifically on the business objectives of educational establishments so we can provide our clients with the most effective service.

We pride ourselves in providing solution driven, efficient and cost effective advice for education establishments. We are friendly and approachable and strive to establish a good working rapport with our clients; becoming a key part of their team. Building relationships from the outset is really important to the way we work, working with our clients rather than for them.

The Education Department is made up of specialist lawyers and other professionals who have extensive experience and can provide practical support on issues impacting on educational establishments. These include Employment, Dispute Resolution, Corporate and Restructuring, Procurement, Intellectual Property, Contracts, Property, Public Liability, Health & Safety, Risk Management, HR and School Finance Support.

We continually seek to expand our offering to our education clients with the sole objective of providing everything they may need.
