Forbes Solicitors wins Best Legal Firm In Lancashire award




Forbes Solicitors wins Best Legal Firm In Lancashire award

Forbes Solicitors is celebrating after winning the award for Best Legal Firm at the Downtown In Business Lancashire Business Awards for the third time.

The 2016 awards, which took place at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel, Clayton-le-Moors, saw more than 200 business leaders celebrate with some of the county’s leading businesses.

Siobhan Hardy, Senior Partner, of Forbes Solicitors said this year’s award was an endorsement of the way all of its staff went about their work.

Siobhan said: “What makes us different is the people that work for us which, in a law firm, equates to its products.

“Clients expect legal technical advice to be accurate. It is how it is delivered that makes us special and we constantly get exceptional reviews from clients about our people.

“Winning awards is not just about the publicity but about the feel good factor that it brings amongst staff. We have invested a lot in Lancashire over the last year and winning this award confirms that this investment and our success have been recognised.”

Forbes, which also won the award in 2012 and 2013 is a broad based practice offering the widest range of legal services in Lancashire, including both private client services and commercial services

Its success has led to it opening a new office based at Walton Summit in response to increasing demand for its Commercial Services and has just promoted eight staff to Partners and Associates.

Its extensive Corporate Social Responsibility covers 30 different community groups within Lancashire, from Blackburn Youth Zone and Preston United to the three major junior football leagues in Lancashire covering nearly 10,000 children. 

Forbes is also committed to supporting the business community in Lancashire, financially supporting the Lancashire HR Forum. It was headline sponsors of the Red Rose Awards for the 6th consecutive year, Large Business sponsors at the Ribble Valley Business Awards for the second year and sponsors of the family business award at the Hive awards.

The Best Legal Firm award comes after a year in which Forbes celebrated an exceptional number of client wins, with its commercial, housing, insurance and education teams recruiting extra staff as a result.

Forbes is one of the leading law firms in the North with 320 staff including 39 partners and nine offices. 

Office locations include Blackburn (3), Accrington, Central Lancashire, Preston, Chorley, Leeds and Manchester
