I have primarily worked alongside Jenny Burke on a number of commercial law matters with my clients, all of whom have found Jenny’s support and knowledge exceptional. I always know that I can recommend Jenny in complete confidence, knowing that the service she and her colleagues will provide to my clients will be of the highest standard.

Having worked with several local law firms I have always found Forbes offer the best service as they always put the client first. The partners and staff I have worked with are excellent. I have received positive feedback when recommending Jenny Burke and Victoria Motley. Their service is professional, attitude is always positive, and they always have time to listen to clients to ensure they are meeting all their needs.

David and his team guided us through the Management Buy Out of our Company and we cannot recommend him highly enough. After 38 years of running the business, it was a daunting and emotional task for us but he truly was a pleasure to deal with. He kept us up to speed at every stage of the process, guiding us through the paperwork and answering all our queries in a friendly and patient manner. Highly recommended and we would have no hesitation in using him again.

Forbes have recently acted on my behalf on the sale of my company, Gemma Catlow has overseen all of our transaction and I could not recommend a more professional diligent person who has personally given a first class attention for the smooth completion of the deal. Gemma has taken the time to explain issues to a client may appear daunting at time to guide us through the transfer of each stage.

Cromie Limited

Rebecca & supporting team provided exemplary support throughout our long & arduous journey despite many twists & turns at each stage over the years.Rebecca has a very calming personality and this helped considerably in cutting through the chase.I will definitely recommend and use service again.
