Coodes Solicitors has launched a commercial disputes and insolvency team, enhancing the range of legal support it can offer to businesses.

Led by Coodes partner and litigation lawyer, Verona Cocks, the new commercial disputes and insolvency department will offer businesses expert legal advice on preventing and tackling disputes.

Currently a team of three lawyers, the firm aims to double its size within the next two years.

The new team is part of Coodes’ strategy to grow its commercial work. The firm recently established a business services team, bringing together its specialist business departments across Cornwall and into Devon.

Cocks said: “The fact that we are now in a position to launch a specialist team that is dedicated solely to supporting businesses through disputes and insolvency is testament to Coodes’ growing reputation for commercial law.

“With our thriving commercial property, corporate and commercial, employment and regulatory departments, Coodes is now rightly characterised as a full service commercial law firm.”
