Blandy & Blandy is a leading firm of solicitors, based in Reading and London. The Thames Valley has been our home since 1733 and we have the heritage and reputation that comes with this longevity.

We enjoy working closely with our clients and are committed to achieving success with them.

Commercially, we provide a full range of legal services to both public and private sector organisations, ranging from national and multinational companies, through to banks and lenders, SMEs and owner-managed businesses, charities and educational institutions, professional practices, landowners and developers and venue and event operators.

And for nearly 300 years we have advised generations of clients on all aspects of their personal, family and business lives.

Our partners and many of our associates are acknowledged as experts by the two major legal directories, Chambers UK and The Legal 500, and we are top ranked as a firm by both. We have also held the Law Society’s Lexcel quality mark since 2003. Of the 11,000 legal practices in England and Wales fewer than 10% have achieved this ‘gold standard’.

We place our clients’ best interests at the heart of all that we do, while ensuring , through our partner led approach, that we embody our values of excellence, integrity and approachability. Feedback from both our clients and peers confirms this.

We seek to balance our heritage with a modern and progressive approach, in terms of the services we offer and the way in which they are delivered. This, underpinned by our independence, means that our clients continue to trust and recommend us year after year.
