Special mention in the Legal 500 for Coodes associate, Melanie Grose

Coodes Solicitors has been recognised for its expertise in contested trusts and probate by one of the legal profession’s most respected guides.

In the newly-released Legal 500, Coodes’ personal disputes team, which specialises in resolving contentious wills and inheritance claims, is ranked among the best in the south west.

The Legal 500 states that Coodes brings “excellent industry knowledge” to Inheritance Act claimants and executors, and those seeking to challenge the validity of Wills.

The guide also gives special mention to Coodes associate, Mel Grose, who “demonstrates a high degree of knowledge and professionalism”.

She said: “I am thrilled that the department has made it into the Legal 500 and to have had a personal mention is great recognition. Achieving this ranking demonstrates our expertise in a highly specialist area of law but, for me, seeing the positive comments from clients is the best recognition.”

The ranking adds to Coodes’ growing recognition for its expertise in the specialist field of contentious trusts, wills and inheritance claims. The firm has three members of the leading industry body, the Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) – the highest number for any firm in Cornwall.
