Blandy & Blandy LLP Solicitors

About Us

With conveniently located offices in Reading, Henley-on-Thames and London, and a team of more than 50 lawyers and over 100 staff, Blandy & Blandy LLP is recognised as one of the Thames Valley's leading firms of solicitors.

Excellence, Integrity, Approachability

We recently celebrated 285 years of excellence, placing us among the UK's 25 longest established law firms. We combine our proud heritage with a modern and forward-thinking approach and strongly believe in the strength of our independence.

Our firm is firmly a part of the region's future, as much as it is of its past, and as both the Thames Valley and our clients’ needs and expectations continue to grow and evolve, so do we.

Listening carefully to your needs and aims, we are committed to providing you with clear, practical and effective legal advice, a responsive and highly personal service and, crucially, value for money.

Our extensive knowledge of the region, combined with our established relationships within the professional community and our experience in working with lenders and other leading firms, can help to minimise the likelihood and impact of any unforeseen issues or costly delays.

We are highly experienced in advising on the full range of legal issues affecting you and your family. Our solicitors are experienced in acting for broad range of clients, from first time buyers to established property investors, high net worth individuals such as business owners or shareholders to families and elderly clients.

Commercially, we provide a comprehensive range of services to organisationals including UK subsidiaries of multinational companies, SMEs and family or owner-managed businesses, charities, schools and other education providers, landowners and developers and high profile venue and event operators. 

We act for prominent institutional clients including Reading Borough Council, the University of Reading and Reading Buses, large and fast growing businesses, national and local charities and leading independent schools. We also continue to advise in relation to landmark projects, ranging from Thames Tower to Green Park and on some of the region’s largest residential and mixed use developments.

Our solicitors are specialist experts and members of industry leading professional bodies, including Law Society panels. We have also held the Law Society’s Lexcel quality mark since 2003 and are among only 10% of solicitors firms in England and Wales to have achieved this.

Members of our team are regularly invited to speak at a range of events and many have featured as experts in the media, including on Sky News, BBC television and radio.

We are consistently recognised as a top tier firm of solicitors in the UK's leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500, and our successful approach is further reflected through a record number of rankings, awards and nominations.
