To provide a comprehensive commercial service, Coodes has established a business services team, bringing together its specialist business departments across Cornwall and into Devon.

The last 12 months have seen Coodes establish two new specialist teams in Commercial Dispute Resolution and Insolvency along with Employment, as well as growing its existing Company Commercial and Commercial Property departments. Coodes has also developed new ways of working with businesses, including launching schemes to give small businesses flexible and affordable access to employment advice.

Coodes is now preparing to further expand the team and build its growing number of national and international commercial clients as well as attracting more South West businesses.

Peter Lamble, chairman of Coodes said: “Our Business Services team has a depth of specialisms and a range of experience through working for some of the UK’s leading law firms, as well as the local knowledge that our regional businesses appreciate.

“Over the coming year we plan to recruit new talent so will be seeking to attract business lawyers who want to work for a forward-looking, progressive firm that balances its ambitions with being a flexible and caring employer.”
