Who we work with

“The team at Blandy & Blandy have a very wide range of experience and industry knowledge. ”

“A thoroughly professional approach, high standards and flexibility are the distinguishing hallmarks of this practice”

“Blandy’s has provided us with legal advice and an excellent service for several decades. They make the effort to really understand our business and provide us with the right legal support, when required.”

“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.”

“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.”

“From the inception of Parago in 2010, Blandy & Blandy have provided services around incorporation, recruitment and HR, property and our customer licensing. We have always found their service efficient and professional, and this was reflected when they acted on our behalf in the sale of the company.”

“We were expertly guided through this process by the Blandy & Blandy team. It was not something we have done before and so having David and his colleagues’ experience behind us was vital and reassuring at every stage.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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 involvement has ranged from matters of contract law and employment strategy to advice on complex M&A projects; at times this has involved several countries and has thrown up challenging matters of compliance and corporate governance. Their service has always been professional, prompt and personal.”

“They were brilliant to work with and we feel like we have been in a safe pair of hands. We have been impressed with Blandy & Blandy. ”

“Blandy and Blandy has advised The Food Storage and Distribution Federation over the last five years, on a range of matters. They have always responded quickly, to enable us to solve problems and in some cases to provide an answer to an FSDF member business.”
