Another new law firm has opened in Bristol as the city continues to develop as a legal hotspot. The latest addition is Codobo Law, a firm set up by experienced Bristol lawyer Sean Campbell and specialising in advice for the construction and engineering industries.
Mr Campbell, an established construction solicitor, has practiced at top law firms including Masons (now Pinsent Masons) and leading Bristol-based firm TLT. He was most recently head of construction at Bristol firm Morgan Cole.
He said Codobo Law aims to provide legal advice to construction and engineering clients at every stage of a project, from procurement to project completion, including advice on dispute avoidance and resolution.
It will work for end users, developers, main contractors and specialist subcontractors and consultants and also provides training for clients.
Mr Campbell said: “I am extremely excited to be launching a new law firm at a time when the construction and engineering industries are facing a challenging marketplace. Without the significant overheads of large traditional law firms, we give our clients a commercial advantage by ensuring they benefit from specialist advice and training at very competitive rates.”
Last month Bristol Business News revealed that international legal heavyweight firm Simmons & Simmons is to open an office in Bristol this autumn, a move which follows the arrival of national firms RPC (Reynolds Porter Chamberlain) and Irwin Mitchell in the past two years. Meanwhile a number of new, small firms such as Temple Bright have been opened by experienced lawyers leaving some of the city’s larger practices.
Fast-growing Temple Bright now has 14 partners – six have joined this year alone.
