Legal 500 ‘Hall of Fame’ Lawyer Joins Forbes’ Insurance Team

2 April 2024

Insurance litigation specialist Jonathan Clay has joined full-service law firm Forbes Solicitors as part of its ambitions to further grow its private and public sector insurance work.

A well-regarded lawyer who has ranked in the renowned Legal 500 Hall of Fame, Jonathan will draw on more than 40 years’ legal experience to support Forbes’ Insurance Team in the newly created role of Business Development Consultant.

Led out of Forbes’ Manchester office, the Insurance Team works closely with local authorities across the North of England, and nationally, as well as major insurers and businesses throughout the retail, manufacturing, construction, and care sectors.

Jonathan will utilise his career experience and insight to help Forbes continue its growth in these key areas. Previously, Jonathan has held strategic business roles and led relationships with specialist and general insurers across multiple lines of business. He has advised on a broad range of claims against insurance clients and supported them with risk management advice.

Chris Booth, a Partner and Head of Insurance at Forbes Solicitors, commented: “We’ve had the privilege of knowing Jonathan for a number of years and have long admired his achievements. He has a wealth of knowledge and deep insight of the most pressing risks facing organisations and insurers. This fits perfectly with our insurance team’s extensive range of specialisms and their ambitions to successfully expand our provision of services and quality legal advice.

“The newly created role of Business Development Consultant is intended to create more opportunities for our insurance team to work in close collaboration with clients to mitigate risks and potential liabilities. Jonathan is the ideal person for helping create these opportunities.”

Jonathan Clay, added: “I’ve always been impressed by the long-standing client relationships that Forbes builds. These span decades and are testament to the delivery of trusted and authentic advice by united teams and leadership. The chance to be part of this was too good an opportunity to turn down and I’m looking forward to supporting the insurance team’s continued success, which is well-rooted in exceptional service levels and client satisfaction.”
