Blandy & Blandy LLP Solicitors

“An incredibly impressive team.”

Chambers UK

For You & Your Family

Employment Law Solicitors

One of the leading firms of solicitors in Reading and the Thames Valley, we advise employees on all aspects of Employment Law and at every stage of the employment relationship. Our specialist expertise is acknowledged in the UK’s leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500.

Our Expertise

A significant part of our Employment law team's work has always involved acting for individuals. As a result, we have a real depth and diversity of experience to draw on, ranging from advising directors of Plcs to large groups of employees facing redundancy or the transfer of their employment (TUPE) to a new employer.

Whether you need advice on the terms of a new employment contract or your existing rights, bonus and share option arrangements, disability or discrimination, a grievance or disciplinary issue, fleible working requests, maternity or paternity leave, redundancy, dismissal, a settlement agreement or something else, we are dedicated to providing a no nonsense analysis of the situation and a way forward which will achieve the best outcome for you.

We are committed to ensuring that our services offer value for money and will always examine available funding options with you.

Further, unlike many firms of solicitors, we routinely represent our clients at employment tribunals, working closely with barristers when required. Experience has shown that end to end conduct of an employment dispute results in a more favourable result.

We also have significant experience in acting for acting for large organisations (employers), resulting in a crucial, and often time and cost saving, understanding of matters from both perspectives.
