The rankings are compiled based on peer-led interviews and research and see Blandy & Blandy placed alongside the likes of Womble Bond Dickinson, Bryan Cave Leigton Paisner, Gateley and Osborne Clarke.

Highly experienced partner and team head Karen Jones also features, ranked an impressive tenth in a list of the top planning law solicitors in the UK. As does Simon Dimmick, who completes the top 20.

Karen said: “Blandy & Blandy is home to one of the largest Planning & Environmental Law teams in the region and we pride ourselves on providing significant expertise and an unrivalled service in this specialist area of law.

We believe that our extensive knowledge of the Thames Valley, our long-term involvement in key projects and our established relationships with other leading professional services firms helps to further set us apart.

We also work closely with colleagues across our firm, in areas such as Commercial Property, Dispute Resolution and Venue Licensing.”

Blandy & Blandy is ranked as a top tier firm for both planning and environmental law in the UK’s leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500, with the latter also recognising Karen Jones as a 'leading individual' in her field.
