Excellent contact with Claire, very clear on all accounts. I must say your presentation and the explanation of time spent on your invoices was easy to understand, I wish more firms would do this as legal matters are a considerable outlay.
The service I received from Robin Stephens was both good value and efficient. Highly recommended
Excellent service. I have engaged Forbes on a number of occasions, Employment, Personal Wills, Property Purchase with SIPPs, Dispute Resolution and Shareholder Agreement. I have always thought the staff involved were very professional yet practical in their approach and I have recommended Forbes a number of times to friends and colleagues.

Always give us helpful, solid advice - thoroughly reliable and easy to deal with.
Callum Halley has over recent time been working on a dispute situation I have found myself and my business in the middle of. Whilst understanding that my situation was of relatively low monetary value, the core of the dispute clashed with my ethical understanding of good business practices. I approached Forbes to discuss my situation and gain the best advice for me to move the issue forward towards conclusion. Callum Halley has without doubt been able to advise and guide me through to reaching a resolvable mind set. Callum has done so using a structured and logical process.
Callum has documented his advice in such a manner a non-legal minded recipient can understand without being patronising; a skill many professionals don't seem to be able to grasp. As mentioned above, Callum's written advice is structured and logical. Callum at no point has made a decision for me, he has professionally, through talking and written advice, enabled myself to reach the most ethical and fairest path to take my situation forward.
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 and ensures we will win a lot of business over the 3 year duration of the tender.
Great result, could not have been done without your input.
We would like very much to offer our thanks and appreciation to Michael Rutter for his negotiations on our behalf.
Our dealings with pervious legal bodies in this particular matter were protracted and inconclusive but Michael managed to swiftly resolve the issue for us in a most pleasant and efficient manner.
We would have no hesitation at all in recommending him to others.
Derek & Mildred Walmsley
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.

Robin and his team have achieved what other legal advisers couldn't! Outstanding debt of almost £20k chased and paid within three weeks! We have used Forbes for years but never thought of using the debt recovery team, what an oversight!

"I would like to give our sincere thanks for all the work that Manisha Modasia has done on our behalf. She has now dealt with three separate matters for us; in each case Manisha has been extremely professional, helpful and courteous. She has explained the legalities and terminology in a way that was informative and not at all patronising; I know I can pick up the phone for her advice whenever I am unsure - she has become a really useful tool in our armoury! Further, in monetary terms Manisha is worth her weight in gold - she has saved/recovered us thousands already!"
