About Farnworth Rose Solicitors

From our offices in Nelson, Lancashire, in 2007 we began the journey that would lead to us developing our team immeasurably. It’s with thanks to the repeat business we receive from our clients and partners that we have since been able to expand our offices and in October 2014, we opened the doors at our new office in Barrowford!

This has allowed us to be more accessible to our existing and potential clients, offering affordable legal services right on your doorstep!

Our reputation has gone national!

As one of Lancashire’s leading law firms, we are also gaining national recognition thanks to the great work of our holiday illness and accident compensation claims team.

This has led to our work receiving coverage in national and local newspapers including the Mail Online, The Independent, The Sun, the Lancashire Telegraph and the Burnley Express.

So no matter how you’ve arrived at our page, whether you’re local to us or not, help is at hand and we are only ever a phone call, email or home visit away!
