Leading law firm Forbes Solicitors has expanded its Employment team into Manchester city centre.
The move coincides with Partner Emma Swan being appointed as Head of Commercial Employment and Partner Ruth Rule-Mullen being appointed as Head of Public Sector Employment, to oversee the Team’s continued growth within the commercial and public sectors.
Associate Solicitor Sal Chowdhury and Solicitor James Barron are now working full-time out of the firm’s offices at Church House, Deansgate, which was previously only a base for part of Forbes’ Insurance Team.
The team in Lancashire is continuing to grow too, with Solicitor Katy Parkinson joining earlier this month.
Forbes, in conjunction with recruitment specialists Hays, will be holding two Employment events in Manchester, one focused at commercial clients and one focused on education clients.
The education employment event will be held at Hays’ Manchester Office on the 31 January and is on handling investigations in a school setting – how to ensure your investigation process is fit for an Employment Tribunal.
The commercial employment event will be held at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday March 14. The event is an interactive mock employment tribunal, aimed at business owners, directors, HR practitioners and managers.

Jonathan Holden, Partner and National Head of Employment said: “Moving Sal and James into Manchester city centre is part of the Team’s strategy to grow our client base in the Manchester area along with an increase in demand for the services we provide.”
