Forbes Solicitors is proud to announce our recognition as Defendant Law Firm of the year at the Claims Management Awards 2017. The awards aim to celebrate achievements and progress made by the leading professionals in the claims sector.
Forbes was recognised for its tenacious Fraud team and its Social Care and Abuse claims team.
Forbes' Fraud team have achieved million pound savings for clients, as well as undertaking ground-breaking work on fundamental dishonesty and post discontinuance recovery. Forbes' Social Care and Abuse claims team was recognised for its innovative and sensitive management of large, multi-claimant social care claims. The team's holistic approach to dealing with abuse claims and helping Local Authority clients deal with some of the most complex and high profile claims in recent history has been recognised by the judging panel, as has the team's unique offering of in-house social work advice and our highly effective document security protocols.
The Judges commented 'This firm punches above its weight and has a big profile in the Public Sector. It has carved out a niche for itself within Local Authority work and has also built up a successful abuse team. Its anti-fraud team estimated its saved millions for its Public Sector clients and it has also been given sole conduct over two of the biggest personal injury group claims of recent times evolving out of the Rochdale and Rotherham sex abuse scandals. The winner is; Forbes Solicitors.'
At Forbes Solicitors 'clients receive real personal attention from people who know their stuff. The team is hardworking and knowledgeable and is very comfortable with high-value claims'.
