Blandy & Blandy Recognised as a Top Tier Firm in The Legal 500

Blandy & Blandy has once again been recognised as a ‘top tier’ firm in the 2022 edition of The Legal 500, published last week, placing it among the leading law firms in the region.

Blandy & Blandy is ranked in an impressive 13 areas of law, all of those in which it practises, and is named in the top tier in four of these - ‘Family’, ‘Personal Tax, Trusts and Probate’, ‘Environment and Planning’ and ‘Licensing’.

The firm is also highly recommended in the areas of ‘Corporate and Commercial’, ‘Employment’, ‘Commercial Property’, ‘Commercial Litigation’, ‘Insolvency and Recovery’, ‘Property Litigation’, ‘Contentious Trusts and Probate’, ‘Charities’ and the ‘Public Sector’.

13 of Blandy & Blandy’s 15 partners are individually recognised as experts in their respective fields (as The Legal 500 does not assess the area of Residential Property), whilst partners Jonathan Gater, (Personal Tax, Trusts and Probate), Karen Jones (Environment and Planning) and Sue Dowling (Licensing) are acknowledged as ‘leading individuals’. Congratulations too to other colleagues who are also recommended; Elizabeth Short and Louise Nelson (both Personal Tax, Trusts and Probate), Gemma Smith (Commercial Property), Pippa Garrod (Property Litigation), and Andrea Corr (Employment).

Blandy & Blandy is commended for providing a “very good service and “clear advice”, for having a “thorough understanding of client’s requirements and how to manage their expectations” and “a thirst to achieve the very best outcome for their client.”

The firm is also described as a “really strong practice” as having “a high degree of integrity and the highest professional standards” and as ‘an excellent firm with a long and prestigious history in the region.’

Chairman and partner Nick Burrows said: “Throughout what has been a very challenging year for everyone, colleagues have worked tremendously hard, often going the extra mile to ensure that we continue to provide the high standard of legal services and excellent client care on which our reputation is built. We are very pleased that this collective effort has been recognised in this year’s Legal 500 rankings by our clients and others with whom we work.

Well done to our team and thank you to all those who took the time to share their experience of working with Blandy & Blandy.”

Recognised as one of the leading guides to the legal profession, The Legal 500 analyses and ranks law firms based on how they are viewed by both clients and other professionals. The UK edition is one of more than 100 published worldwide.
