Forbes Solicitors

Forbes Solicitors is ranked as a Legal 500 Top Tier Firm and a Chambers and Partners Leading Firm, receiving 70 nominations in the latest editions.

The firm has 11 offices across the North of England, which are home to around 400 team members supporting public and private sector organisations nationwide on a range of legal matters.

Forbes’ specialist Housing & Regeneration Group works together with registered providers of housing and local authorities to address a wide range of matters including governance and compliance, planning, development and regeneration, tenancy management, crime and anti-social behaviour, employment and HR and corporate objectives such as acquisitions, joint ventures and partnerships.  

Forbes Solicitors’ services are designed to provide housing associations with complete transparency throughout case management, avoid unnecessary costs and jargon, free-up capacity for in-house teams and maintain compliance and assurance.

As well as comprehensive legal advice, Forbes is experienced in providing housing associations with training services that address changing regulatory requirements and are industry leaders in building best-practice networks that support housing associations in taking a preventative approach to creating safer communities.

A large percentage of the work undertaken by the ASC Forbes Service relates to facilitating effective partnerships between Housing, Police, Social Care and the Third Sector. This has enabled Registered Housing Providers to achieve quicker, successful outcomes to cases which had previously encountered barriers, delays, vulnerability risks and potential escalation of complaints.

This service has been particularly beneficial to large, national housing associations with dispersed properties who may not have an established foothold in the local community safety arena due to geographical and logistical reasons.
