Cornwall Legal

Welcome to Cornwall Legal and Governance Services

We cannot provide legal advice to members of the public or private sector bodies and will not respond to messages received, whether they seek advice or to raise issues or concerns.

If you are a member of the public or a private sector body and have an issue or concern you wish to raise please visit the Councils Feedback and Complaints webpage.

We are an experienced team providing high quality and value for money legal advice. We provide support to Cornwall Council and other public sector bodies. These include schools, local councils, and fire and rescue authorities.

If you are a public sector body and would like us to help you or want to learn more about what we do, please contact us.  Please use the email address on the team page that matches your requirements. You might also want to  look at the details of our teams, and the support they can provide to you. Apart from our range of disciplines, we have extensive public sector experience.

If you’re thinking of instructing us, please read the  Service Level Agreement and our Standard Terms of Business, that will apply.

You may be able to get advice from Citizens Advice Cornwall. They provide free, independent and confidential advice on a wide range of issues, including:

You can also appoint a solicitor or other lawyer to assist you. The Law Society has information on their website about finding and using a solicitor.
