Forbes Chris Bowers

Forbes Solicitors has appointed Chris Bowers as a partner as it continues to scale and drive further growth.

Chris – who completed his training at Forbes back in 2000 – re-joins the firm as head of the newly formed insolvency team.  

After Chris’ departure from Forbes in 2003 he worked as an insolvency specialist at Taylors and Stephensons, before managing his own legal recovery and insolvency firm, Goldsmith Bowers Solicitors. Chris has spent the last 20 years building an impressive reputation in personal and corporate insolvency, handling contentious and non-contentious work.

Bringing with him this wealth of experience, Chris will join the 22 strong dispute resolution team to strengthen its position as it launches a new insolvency offering for new and existing clients. 

Speaking of his new role and the demand for such services, Chris said: “The opportunity to return to Forbes Solicitors and help broaden their service offering was one I simply couldn’t refuse. The world has radically changed in the 19 years since I left. The current economic turbulence and uncertainty caused by recent world events and the spiralling cost-of-living crisis will undoubtedly have a huge impact on businesses across the board.

“The unfortunate reality is that some companies will need to seek insolvency advice, with small businesses being impacted the hardest. The corporate and commercial team at Forbes can provide a full service to clients requiring assistance during these torrid times and I am delighted to be part of this amazing team.”

Forbes Solicitors’ dispute resolution team has expertise in a broad range of different types of commercial disputes and offer advice in connection with contracts and commercial issues, professional services and advice, the ownership and management of companies, land and property, construction, and intellectual property. 

The firm regularly litigates successfully in all forums, including the County Court, the High Court and represent clients in settlement meetings, ADR, and mediation. 

Pauline Rigby, managing dartner at Forbes Solicitors, added: “We’re thrilled to welcome Chris back to Forbes. He’s a hugely talented insolvency specialist and capable of handling complex cases with ease. He combines his skills with passion and proficiency and is a real asset to the firm.”
