Who we work with

“Blandy & Blandy gives excellent advice at a fair cost to owner-managed businesses, investors and financiers.”

The Legal 500

“Blandy & Blandy has advised Austin Fraser in a number of areas over the past 10 years. 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.”

Richard Stenson, Commercial Director, Austin Fraser Limited

“Blandy’s has provided us with legal advice and an excellent service for several decades. They are a valued partner who make the effort to really understand our business and provide us with the right legal support, when needed. They have shown their excellence again and again, including helping with ensuring that recent acquisitions proceeded smoothly.”

Tony Pettitt, Chief Finance & Information Officer, Reading Buses (Reading Transport Limited)

“Blandy & Blandy has provided R Collard Limited with legal advice for over 12 years, supporting the growth of our company. They are a valued partner, understand our business needs and provide us with the right legal support, when needed.”

Robert Collard, Managing Director, R Collard Limited

“With one of the world’s largest accounting and legal practices acting for the acquirer, Blandy’s completely held their own and for this, among many reasons, I would recommend the firm unhesitatingly.”

Russell Willcox, Chairman, Box Technologies Limited

“Blandy and Blandy have taken time to understand the detail of Ambic’s business which has enabled them to provide excellent advice and timely service over many years.

Their service has always been professional, prompt and personal.”

Colin Kingston, Managing Director, Ambic Equipment Limited

“My thanks to you all for your support and hard work over the past few weeks. I certainly know I had the 'A team' on my side.”
