We have been working with Forbes solicitors for about three months now. We have worked on several different tasks together within all our businesses and they have done a great job with each one. Both John and Jenny have been very patient with us, and have always made the effort to come out and see us personally if we encountered any problems or had any questions. Most of all they are very thorough and precise with each contract and have made it very easy for us to feel very confident going into new territories, whether it being a different country or a different manufacturer.


Have dealt with several staff at Forbes. Always very clear, professional and approachable. Happy to recommend them and will use again.


The North & Western Chamber of Commerce is delighted to partner with John Pickervance of Forbes Solicitors to deliver training to our 1600 members on the subjects of International Trade Fundamentals, Intellectual Property, and Third Party Contracts and Terms & Conditions. John brings a high level of expertise in these areas which we're sure will benefit our members.

Forbes Solicitors have acted on behalf of WEC Group Limited for many years providing advice on a range of matters including Corporate & Restructuring and Commercial Property. I have always found them to be very approachable and professional and have always received technically sound advice. More recently, Forbes have been involved in our successful purchase of assets from MTL Group Limited and we found their efficiency and desire to get the job done instrumental in getting the deal through, especially as we were working to a tight timeframe over just a few weeks. The team has also helped us in the negotiation of commercial contracts concerning MTL with large international customers. We look forward to continuing to work with Forbes and using their full range of services
