South west legal firm Coodes has expanded its commercial property team with the appointment of two new lawyers.
Paralegal Yasin Ahmed is based in the firm’s Truro office and will assist lawyers within the team on several commercial property matters to support their legal needs.
Ahmed, who grew up in Cornwall, started his legal career two years ago focusing on the property sector with Penderlaw Solicitors in Truro, while studying for his LLM in Legal Practice and Masters at the University of Law’s Exeter campus.
Also based in Truro, Jo Counter joins Coodes as a commercial property executive specialising in the sale and purchase of freehold commercial property, landlord and tenant matters and new build developments.
Counter recently returned to Coodes having previously worked at the firm for several years. She has over ten years of experience in the commercial property sector, both in the legal profession and then in a commercial agency.
Jo Morgan, partner and head of commercial property for Coodes, said: “We are delighted to welcome Yasin and Jo and have them on board. Their appointments are fundamental to the future expansion of our commercial property team, providing our clients with the wealth of experience and legal skills they require.
“It’s also incredibly important that we develop and retain these skilled individuals in the south west and invest time in supporting their growth and knowledge.”
