Forbes Solicitors has received national recognition after scooping the title of Defendant Law Firm of the year at the Claims Management Awards 2017.

The awards celebrate achievements and progress made by the leading professionals in the claims sector and Forbes was recognised for its tenacious Fraud Team and its Social Care and Abuse claims Team.

The judges commented, “Forbes has a big profile in the Public Sector and has carved out a niche for itself within Local Authority work and has also built up a successful abuse team. Its anti-fraud team estimated it has saved millions for its Public Sector clients and it has also been given sole conduct over two of the biggest personal injury group claims of recent times.”

Siobhan Hardy, Forbes’ Senior Partner, comments, “I am delighted that Forbes has been recognised as Defendant Law Firm of the Year. The firm faced stiff competition in the category and it is pleasing to see the efforts of the Insurance Teams within the firm recognised with this award.”
