Coodes Solicitors has been recommended in the latest edition of a leading guide to the UK’s best lawyers, the Legal 500.
The 2018 edition of the Legal 500 UK recommends Coodes for its expertise in advising those seeking compensation for clinical negligence and personal injury, agriculture and estates as well as handling contentious trusts and probates.
The national guide highlights Coodes’ expertise in a wide range of clinical negligence cases, including being adept in representing clients at inquests in relation to preventable suicides of mental health patients. It particularly praises Partner Tim Goldburn for his ‘vast experience’ and for being ‘very able and good with clients’. It also ranks Coodes Solicitors for its expertise in personal injury claims including road traffic accidents, accidents at work and public liability claims.
The guide praises the Rural Services team’s expertise in commercial property and succession planning, disputes, contentious probate, divorce and crime, stating that the team is ‘highly experienced and has deep professional knowledge’. The guide recommends the head of the team Pam Johns, describing her as ‘highly efficient and has an excellent reputation’.
The Legal 500 UK ranks the contentious trust and probate team particularly singling out Colin Hunter who heads the team, specialising in contentious trust and probate disputes. Partner Melanie Grose, who advises on a wide range of contentious trust and probate disputes, was also recommended by the guide.
Peter Lamble, Chairman of Coodes Solicitors, said: “It is really rewarding to see a broad range of Coodes’ expertise being recognised in the Legal 500. This national guide is extremely prestigious, so we are delighted to be listed among the UK’s top law firms.
“We are especially pleased with this recognition because the guide is mainly based on feedback from clients. Being featured in the Legal 500 can reassure our clients that they can access the very best legal advice right on their doorstep.”
