- Blandy & Blandy Expands its Reach in Henley-on-Thames
Blandy & Blandy LLP has announced the acquisition of the business of Henley-on-Thames based firm, Collins Dryland & Thorowgood LLP, giving the firm a presence in the town and cementing its connections with the wider South Oxfordshire region.
Blandy & Blandy is recognised as a top tier regional firm by both Chambers UK Guide and The Legal 500 and was recently awarded a one star rating in the annual Best Companies survey, recognising workplace excellence.
Chairman, Brenda Long, said: “CDT is a long established firm with a solid reputation for client service and is very much part of the Henley establishment. Blandy & Blandy also has longstanding connections with the area and a number of significant clients in Henley and this merger of our operations and greater investment in Henley will widen access to our full range of legal services and enable more clients to benefit from our partner led approach and commitment to client care.
“We are in the process of writing to clients to share this exciting news and to reiterate that it is very much a case of business as usual. We look forward to offering CDT’s existing clients the same high standards of excellence.”
Despite a heritage spanning nearly 300 years, Blandy & Blandy prides itself on being a progressive and forward thinking firm, as it continues to grow and evolve. In 2015 the firm opened a new second office close to Reading Station and the number of partners has risen by more than a third since 2014. The firm now has offices in Reading, London and Henley-on-Thames.
Long added: “As we look ahead, Blandy & Blandy is poised to capitalise further on the investments it has made, both in recruiting excellent staff, and in our premises and infrastructure. I am proud to lead the firm into an exciting and ambitious future.”
In September 2016 Blandy & Blandy hosted a reception in Henley-on-Thames to mark the firm's expansion into the town.
