The ‘client focus’ at Forbes impresses its trainees, and some of the firm’s prominent clients include Calico Homes, Together Group and Yorkshire Bank. In the words of one trainee: ‘the client contact and feedback really helps to reinforce that you are making a positive contribution’.
Forbes has won in three categories in this year’s Lex 100 survey: client contact, work/life balance and confidence in being kept on. Respondents to the survey were quick to praise the ‘supportive working environment’ at a firm with a ‘good reputation for training solicitors properly’.
If the firm were a fictional character it would be… Daphne Moon (Frasier) – Northern, friendly and a well-established character.
