Who we work with

“Responsive, commercial and prepared to roll up their sleeves.”

“Particular experience of property acquisitions and disposals and the sale and purchase of valuable development sites.”

“Blandy & Blandy has advised Austin Fraser in a number of areas over the past 10 years, including recently on the first letting of the landmark Thames Tower. We have always found Blandy & Blandy to be exceptionally detailed, comprehensive and a pleasure to work with and would have no hesitation in recommending the firm.”

“Blandy’s have acted for us over a number of years on a diverse range of issues. We have found them to be clear, expert, well-resourced and approachable in their advice.”

“The Oratory Schools Association has worked closely with Blandy & Blandy not only on human resource issues such as disciplinary proceedings and contractual disputes, but also on business contracts and land and property transactions. Of particular note, Blandy & Blandy advised the Association during the complex negotiations which led to the sale in late 2019 of The Oratory Prep School. Throughout, the team from Blandy's were highly professional and thorough. In addition, they ensured that we fully understood the complexities involved and then worked very effectively with us to achieve the desired aim in the required timescale. We would recommend Blandy & Blandy without reservation.”

“Homes for Reading has used Blandy's on a number of its acquisitions and each time the service has been excellent. The team keep us well informed and they are proactive around issues that arise. This is a real help to us and a key differentiator of Blandys’ service.”

“With the fast pace of growth that necessitated our move to larger offices, our priority was having someone take away the distraction of negotiating the lease. The team at Blandy & Blandy did exactly that. Nothing was a problem for them and they made the whole process easy, allowing us to get on with business.”

“We have always received a professional and focused advice across a wide range of legal matters. We are impressed with the consistency of the quality provided by all the teams we have had services from.”

“The Abbey is grateful for the continued support of Blandy & Blandy for professional services in particular relating to employment, property and planning law. We would be happy to recommend them to others.”

“They are a valued partner, understand our business needs and provide us with the right legal support, when needed.”

“Blandy & Blandy have been a great help and we would recommend them to anyone.”

“The team is very responsive and commercial in its approach, more so than other property teams.”

“The team give the best advice and will always look at their client’s interests.”

“We feel like they're part of our team. They take on board our values and represent our interests very well, operating as if they are us.”

“Our experience of the team is that they are dedicated and very on the ball, both with timeframes and their advice.”

“We have used them for complicated land transfers and commercial property transfers and found them knowledgeable and efficient, to a very high standard.”
