Davis Blank Furniss is pleased to announce that Forever Manchester will be its new ‘Charity of the Year’. The law firm, which is based on Deansgate, has signed up to Forever Manchester’s ‘Manchester Million Business Club’ and will be taking part in a series of fundraising events over the next 12 months.

The first challenge will see the firm enter a four strong team, led by managing partner Kate Oldfield, into the BUPA Manchester 10K Run which is happening on Sunday 18th May.

Manchester Million members pledge to donate or fundraise (including through referrals) at least £1,000 to help Forever Manchester to support the vital work of grassroots projects at the heart of local communities. The Manchester Million proposition helps a company to deliver the local element of its corporate social responsibility agenda – making a long-lasting contribution to groups near where member companies are based and where their staff live.

The decision to support Forever Manchester – the community foundation for Greater Manchester – was based on the charity’s commitment to providing wide ranging support to small community groups across the region. Its focus is on helping bringing people together and making them feel better about where they live. This ethos – and the grassroots work it delivers every day – impressed the Davis Blank Furniss team.
There are 57 community foundations across the UK and Forever Manchester is the community foundation that represents Greater Manchester and it supports all ten boroughs: Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan.

Forever Manchester has strong connections within each local community and so ensures donations are accurately targeted to achieve the biggest impact.

Kate Oldfield – managing partner – said: “Davis Blank Furniss has operated in Manchester for decades, so we have a real passion for the city. The work Forever Manchester does really resonated with us so it seemed to be the perfect charity for us to get behind”


The Davis Blank Furniss BUPA Manchester 10K Run Just Giving Page is now live so all donations (no matter how big or small!) would be gratefully appreciated. You can donate here!

Excellent experience start to finish – always very responsive to any queries and the turnaround on the property I was buying was very quick, even in the busy time leading up to stamp duty deadline. Jenny was always very helpful and went above and beyond to close on a short timescale.

Ben Armitage

“Very approachable, practical solutions to problems, but most of all very responsive which I personally think is very important because if you need help, you need it quickly, or at least to know someone is looking at it for you”.

Joanne Rowe, Finance Director, Greater Manchester Chamber

“Always able to contact, very approachable, friendly and professional”

Nives Feely, JAM Recruitment

“I believe I have been able to establish a professional working relationship with everyone I have come into contact. Importantly, I sense the relationships which have been established give me the confidence that I can make contact with Davis Blank Furniss at any time and on any matter. I would also like to express my thanks to the very impressive “gatekeepers” who work in reception, not only for making me very welcome, but also for their professionalism”

Bill Pryke, CEO, Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors

“Thank you for your efficient and friendly help throughout this process. We have had it easy but your approach has been part of that”.

Robert Amsbury (Conveyancing Client)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for the ongoing support and assistance the firm has offered to our parents over the years. I hope also that we may be able to call on you if necessary in the future.”

Valerie Fisher (Probate Client)

“Jo always provides great service, understands our needs and delivers on her promises. Our needs are relatively simple but the complexity arises out of the volume of work and short time frames, Jo always delivers.”

Peter Fernandez, Corporate Director at Royal Bank of Scotland

“A big thank you to all who dealt with my wife’s claim… We would not hesitate to recommend Davis Blank Furniss to anyone that may be in a situation like we have been…”

Anon (Personal Injury client)

“Before putting my case in Kirsty (Morbey)’s capable hands I’ve met a couple of other solicitors. None of them listen to me as intently as Kirsty and showed me as much empathy and understanding as she did. Simultaneously she was able to look at my case from legal perspective, explain all the options and follow each of our meetings with written summary of the discussed matters (in timely manner). Her advice was invaluable and led me to successfully ending the case matter (hopeful for good). I’m forever grateful for he work and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for reliable, knowledgeable and committed solicitor”.
