Coodes launches online law


South west firm Coodes Solicitors is embracing the future with the launch tomorrow (February 12) of a brand new online legal service.

As exclusively revealed in the February issue of Business Cornwall, Coodes Direct offers fixed price legal support across a range of areas, plus an innovative DIY Law Online service where customers can create their own legal documents.

Both services are available through the firm’s recently revamped website.

The launch means customers will be able to access advice and legal products, from divorce to employment contracts, with the click of a mouse.

While Coodes is presenting an industry first for the south west, the firm believes that buying and selling legal services through the internet will become more and more common in coming years.

Ian Taylor, managing partner at Coodes Solicitors, said: “Offering online legal products and fixed price fees is a new way of thinking for a regional firm such as Coodes.

“However we believe strongly this is the future of law – it enables us to be upfront and transparent about the costs of our services, as well as offer flexibility for customers to access our products wherever and whenever they choose.”

Coodes Direct launches tomorrow with a special event at Boconnoc House, Lostwithiel, where guests will be guided through the online system.
