About Our Firm

With a team of more than 50 specialist solicitors and advisers and 100 staff, in Reading and Henley-on-Thames, we are here to represent you and your family or business, committed to developing long-lasting relationships and to delivering outstanding client care.

 

You can count on our reputation as one of the Thames Valley's leading firms of solicitors.

Having marked our 285th anniversary in 2019, we are also one of the UK's most established law firms. We combine our proud heritage and independence with a modern and forward-thinking approach.

We are very proud of the fact that many of our clients stay with us throughout their lifetimes and to act for some families, and indeed businesses, across generations.

From redundancy or challenges in your business to a relationship breakdown, moving house or planning for your family’s future, we have the experience to help you and, working remotely or in person, our lawyers are here to help.

Whether you are the director of a large company, someone running your own, fast-growing business, a house builder kick-starting a new development, a landowner or a trustee or leader of a charity or educational institution, we recognise that you are still an individual.

We are committed to ensuring that you benefit from the confidence, consistency and cost-efficiency which comes with being able to trust one firm with your legal needs, private and commercial.

Our successful approach is evident in the excellent feedback that many of our clients kindly continue to share, so you can be confident that you are in the very best hands when it comes to legal advice. 

Our solicitors are specialist experts and members of industry leading professional bodies, including Law Society panels. 

Since 2003, we have held the Law Society’s Lexcel quality mark , among only 10% of solicitors firms in England and Wales to have achieved this. 

We are also consistently recognised as a top tier firm of solicitors in the UK's leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK, Chambers High Net Worth Guide and The Legal 500, and we continue to receive a growing number of awards and nominations.

Combining our comprehensive offering with our commitment to client care, Blandy & Blandy is here to represent you in life and business.
