Helen Marsh handled a lease for us on a retail premises in the Trinity Leeds Shopping Centre on a very tight schedule. The lease was not straightforward but was handled with professionalism and alacrity at every stage. We would highly recommend Forbes Solicitors and would be very happy to use the firm again for future commercial undertakings.
