Coodes recognised for legal expertise to high net worth individuals

Fri 15th Sep 2017

South West law firm Coodes Solicitors has been recognised for its expertise and quality service to high net worth clients by independent research firm and publisher Chambers & Partners UK. The Chambers High Net Worth Guide recommends the South West law firm for its private client work, including advising on estate planning, trusts and probate.

The new guide ranks the UK’s best law firms and lawyers working with high net worth individuals. It describes Coodes as a ‘strong regional firm’ whose Wills, Probate and Trusts team specialises in ‘estate and succession planning for landed estates, farming clients and business owners.’ It says that clients describe the team as ‘friendly and proactive’ with ‘deep, technical knowledge, explained in an easy-to-understand way’.

The guide also singles out Coodes Solicitors’ Partner Richard Pollock as a leader in his field, noting that: “He is praised for his combination of technical knowledge and client-focused service, with one source noting his ‘ability, knowledge of trusts and good client interaction’.”

Based in offices across Cornwall and Devon, Coodes Solicitors’ Wills, Probate and Trusts team offers expertise in trusts, estate planning, asset management and tax advice during estate administration. The team has established a reputation for working with high net worth individuals, including some of the region’s most prominent landowners.

Richard Pollock joined Coodes Solicitors in 2005. Based in the firm’s Launceston office, he acts for a number of the firm’s high net worth clients, with specific expertise in estate planning and trusts. He is a Member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), Chair of STEP West of England, a Fellow of the Agricultural Law Association and a Court of Protection Panel Deputy.

The Chambers High Net Worth Guide is based on independent research and client feedback. It ranks the UK’s leading lawyers, accountancy firms, banks, tax advisors and wealth managers.

Coodes Chairman Peter Lamble said: “The Chambers High Net Worth Guide is a prestigious and influential independent guide. Our ranking in the 2017 edition is a fantastic achievement, which reflects the talent of our team and our first-class service to clients.”
