The service I received from Robin Stephens was both good value and efficient
I have engaged Forbes on a number of occasions, I have always thought the staff involved were very professional yet practical in their approach.

Dear Robin Thank you so much for coming to our rescue again!!
Just a note of thanks for the work you did reference the Framework challenge. The new tender winners have been announced and we are on 6 of the 7 framework lots which is a great result
We would like very much to offer our thanks and appreciation to Michael Rutter for his negotiations on our behalf.

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.
