One of the South West’s longest established law firm, Coodes Solicitors, has been recognised for its outstanding work in the region, winning the Medium Business Award at the first ever South West Masters Awards.
The South West Masters Awards were launched at the start of the year by TheBusinessDesk.com to recognise the leading businesses in the South West. The evening brought together business leaders from across the region to celebrate business success. Awards were handed out in 17 different categories and judges had to whittle down the winners from hundreds of entries.
The Medium Business Award was awarded to Coodes for the strong sustained growth of the past few years and investment in the business. The Coodes team were represented by Rachel Pearce (Partner and Department Manager for Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence), Jo Morgan (Partner and Department Manager for Commercial Property) and Abi Lutey (Partner and Department Manager for Commercial Disputes).
Rachel Pearce, Partner and Department Manager for Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence at Coodes said: “It was an incredible evening and we had the pleasure of meeting fellow businesses from the South West who were forward thinking and inspirational. There was such a buzz in the room and we were delighted to be there to celebrate the business success of the region, as well as our own fantastic award win!”
The win was a highlight in an evening which was full of celebration across the region. Coodes colleagues also attended the South West Farmer Awards, with the firm sponsoring the Young Farmer category, alongside as the main sponsor of the Cornwall Heritage Awards 2023.
Peter Lamble, Partner and Chairman of Coodes Solicitors said: “We’re thrilled to be the first winner of the Medium Business Award which recognises our business success in the region. As we recently celebrated our 275th anniversary, we’ve continued to deliver for our clients, invest in the business and our people, and plan for the future.
“As one of the longest established law firms in the South West, our employees are our greatest asset. We pride ourselves on supporting staff across the firm to be the best they can be, whether that’s through wellbeing initiatives, training and mentoring or promotion. I’m delighted this has been recognised through this award.”
