Leading Dispute Resolution & Commercial Litigation Solicitors in Reading, Henley-on-Thames & Wokingham

Commercial disputes are arguably an unavoidable part of life for businesses and other organisations. Handled badly, they can involve significant time and expense and potentially damage your operations, professional relationships and even your reputation.

But it does not have to be that way. Solicitors in our specialist Dispute Resolution team can work proactively with you to identify and address risk within your business or organisation and help to reduce the likelihood of a dispute arising in the future.

If a dispute unfortunately does occur, we will work closely with you to understand the issue, how you would like it handled and to achieve the best possible outcome.

Working With our Leading Team of Dispute Resolution & Commercial Litigation Solicitors

Typically, we work closely with senior executives, business owners and directors, and the relevant experts in their teams, whether that is in finance, legal, operations or commercial areas.

We advise businesses and organisations of all shapes and sizes, including corporations and UK subsidiaries, large private companies including family and owner-managed businesses, landlords and tenants, property investors, landowners and developers, universities and schools, local authorities, town and parish councils and charities and not for profit organisations. We are also experienced in acting for private individuals faced with a dispute.

Our relationships with other leading professional services firms across the Thames Valley and our experience in working closely with other advisers who may be representing you can also help to ensure a smoother process and minimise the likelihood and impact of any unforeseen issues or costly delays.

As members of the Law Firm Network, a global network of 50 law firms, we can advise international clients, including UK subsidiaries of multinational companies, who are investing in the UK, as well refer clients based in the UK to like-minded lawyers overseas.

Trusted Expertise & Experience in Dispute Resolution & Commercial Litigation

Our Dispute Resolution team continues to be recommended in the UK’s leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500, whilst our successful approach and lasting professional relationships are evident in the excellent feedback that our clients kindly continue to share. 

We can advise on matters ranging from contract disputes through to those involving intellectual property or between shareholders and directors and commercial landlords and tenants, defamation or professional negligence claims, debt recovery and judicial reviews.

You can also rely on our specialist expertise areas other than commercial litigation, ranging from corporate and commercial to restructuring, insolvency and business recovery and commercial property, if needed.

We believe that it is important to address any dispute early on, before matters escalate further and perhaps even prior to things becoming contentious.

Whilst we are highly experienced in pursuing and defending commercial disputes through litigation, whether in the High Court or County Court or in the property tribunals, we recognise the demands that unresolved disputes can place on you and your business or organisation and will work to help you avoid the need for litigation and court proceedings where possible.

We can support you in negotiating with other involved parties and advise on alternative dispute resolution methods including arbitration, adjudication and mediation. Our expert solicitors will always discuss the available options with you and provide clear and up to date information of the anticipated timescales and costs, to help carefully manage both aspects.

Who we work with

“Blandy & Blandy's Thames Valley-based offering handles general corporate and contract-based commercial disputes, including those with international elements, alongside an emphasis on proactive advice such as risk identification, avoidance and management.”

The Legal 500

“A notable team handling work including contractual and insolvency disputes and property litigation matters.”

Chambers UK

“The team has a thorough knowledge – they manage client expectations and achieve the very best outcome.”

The Legal 500

“Blandy & Blandy has experience and success across a wide range of commercial litigation.”

Chambers UK

“Blandly and Blandy is a great all-rounder. John Dingle is a super client partner. Always available to offer solutions and looking after all the client needs. I would always turn to David Murray for insolvency advice. He is brilliant, prompt and pragmatic.”

Head of the Estates Legal Team, University of Oxford

“Blandy & Blandy has supported the Glass & Glazing Federation (GGF) with a wide range of legal services, covering all aspects of commercial life, for many years. It’s the simple things that matter most to clients like the GGF, such as prompt responses to communications and sound advice that can be relied upon, which all equate to how you assess value for money as a client. These core building blocks have allowed the GGF to build key relationships with our partners at Blandy & Blandy and take their strategic legal advice as we continue to grow and develop all aspects of the GGF Group.”

Managing Director, Glass & Glazing Federation (GGF)

“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.”

Chief Executive Officer, Reading Buses (Reading Transport Limited)

“Blandy & Blandy trooped together with our rather shell-shocked family through a long and protracted litigation battle that ended up in the High Court. Due entirely to their collective expertise, impeccable knowledge and strategic thinking, together with an excellent choice of Barrister, we secured an outcome that we were exceedingly pleased with, and one that also generally well covered in the media. There is no doubt in our mind that this could not have been achieved with any other team in place. We are, and will remain, extremely grateful.”

Director, Smokeys, Maidenhead
