Coodes Solicitors has lured a leading litigation solicitor back to her home city of Truro to join its specialist commercial team.
Verona Cocks’ experience of representing major corporations for some of the UK’s top law firms will enhance Coodes’ service to regional and national business clients.
She joins Coodes from specialist London banking law firm, Matthew Arnold & Baldwin, where she was a partner in the banking and finance litigation department.
Coodes’ head of commercial services, Peter Lamble, said: “Commercial law is a growth area for Coodes. Appointing someone of Verona’s calibre is a major boost to businesses in Cornwall and Devon who want a comprehensive service from their local law firm, rather than having to source expertise elsewhere.
“As well as significantly enhancing our service to existing clients, we see Verona’s appointment as a great opportunity for us to win new business within the region, but also from national and international firms.”
