Forbes continues expansion with opening of Walton Summit office

Forbes, the largest legal practice in the North West outside the major cities, is to continue its expansion with the opening of a new commercial office in Walton Summit, near Preston.


Forbes already has offices in Blackburn (three), Accrington, Preston, Chorley, Leeds and Manchester.

The premises, at Oak House, Sceptre Way, will be formally opened at a launch event on Wednesday May 18 and will offer a full range of commercial services from a prime location close to the M6, M65 and M61 motorways.

The new office’s location is easily accessible for businesses from across the region and it will provide a central base to support Forbes’ existing commercial offices in Blackburn and Preston.

Pauline Rigby, partner and head of corporate and restructuring at Forbes, said: “The opening of the new office comes in response to increasing demand for our commercial services and will offer an additional location with great links to the motorway network, whilst complementing the services we will continue to offer at our Preston and Blackburn offices.”

Forbes is one of the leading law firms in the North with 36 partners, eight offices and more than 320 staff.
