We have used David numerous times over the years and always been impressed by his work and the work of his team


We used Forbes in the recent sale of our business and from start to finish they were great. We dealt with David and Nick, and even with holidays, cover was in place to ensure completion was within the deadline. They were at hand via email, phone and zoom through out the process and wouldn't hesitate recommending them to anyone.

Billy Coles

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.
