Coodes launches specialist charities team

Mon 14th Nov 2011

A specialist legal service to support Cornwall’s burgeoning charity sector has been launched by Coodes Solicitors.

Worth nearly £400 million to the Cornish economy and employing more than 17,000 people, there are at least 3,000 voluntary and community organisations in the county.

Coodes’ charities team aims to support and advise these organisations formation and structure, employment law, legacies and estates and even an administrative service to assist with the day-to-day running of a charity.

Richard Pollock, who heads up Coodes Charities Team, said: “The third sector is a crucial part of our economy in Cornwall and the South West, offering important services and thousands of jobs.

“Our role is to support the growth of charitable and not-for-profit organisations. With cuts in the public sector, voluntary organisations will become ever more important to our future.”

Joining Richard in the charities team is private client specialist Ed Coode and partner Jonathan Eade, both based in the St Austell office.
