COHPA members’ free legal helpline

We are always looking at ways in which we can add value to COHPA membership.


On behalf of our membership, COHPA has entered into an arrangement with Blacks Solicitors for the provision of legal advice to our members.


Blacks will deal with any legal enquiry you have, on the basis that there will be a free telephone/email consultation of up to 30 minutes per issue. Following this you will have the option to instruct Blacks and agree the terms of your retainer with them. The scheme is run by Iain Jenkins, an Employment Director at Blacks.


Many of you will have seen Iain giving employment up-dates at our AGM and Members’ Update meetings. Iain will be with us again on 20th September 2017 for the AGM and Members’ Update 2017, running a legal Q&A session for members.


Iain’s contact details for your legal advice requirements are:   Direct Dial: 0113 227 9308;   E:
