Forbes Solicitors Opens New Office in Blackpool
Forbes Solicitors has opened a new office in Blackpool as it expands its services across the Fylde Coast.
The new opening sees the law firm grow its footprint to 11 offices, which stretch from Leeds to London, and right across Lancashire.
Located at Metro House on Blackpool’s Metropolitan Business Park, the new office will specialise in Forbes’ criminal law services, which retained a ‘Tier 1’ ranking in the recently released The Legal 500 for the UK. The Blackpool-based office will support Forbes’ commitment to delivering a 24-hour on-call service for serious crimes and provide individuals and businesses along the Fylde Coast with more convenient access to its team and extensive practice areas.
In addition to criminal law, the new office will support the delivery of Forbes Solicitors’ other legal specialisms. These range from corporate, commercial property and employment law, through to business immigration and dispute resolution, as well as personal law services including wills, probate, tax and trusts, family law, conveyancing, and clinical negligence and personal injury.
Pauline Rigby, Managing Partner at Forbes Solicitors, said: “Demand for our services has been growing along the Fylde Coast and it was a logical next step to open our first office in the area. Our team takes pride in working closely together with clients on often complex and confidential matters and having a more local base fits perfectly with this.
“Opening the office also creates new opportunity to offer more of our legal experience to Blackpool-based businesses and we’re very much looking forward to having a new home in such an iconic Lancashire town.”
