Blandy & Blandy’s new Wokingham office was officially opened with the help of some of the borough’s leading councillors.

The event on Tuesday, September 19 at the Rose Inn celebrated the new base of the 290-year-old firm at nearby 5 Market Way which will serve many existing clients who are based in the borough.

Cllr Stephen Conway, leader of Wokingham Borough Council, told guests: “I’m delighted to welcome Blandy & Blandy to Wokingham. I’m particularly pleased to see a company with a strong record, over many years, of engagement with the local community.

“Wokingham will benefit not just from the presence of a firm of long-established and highly regarded solicitors, but also from a community-minded business, willing to play its part in supporting local charities and initiatives designed to improve the quality of life in Wokingham.”

Wokingham borough Mayor Cllr Beth Rowland followed by sharing her experience of dealing with Blandy & Blandy and welcomed the firm to Wokingham. 

Cllr Rob Comber, deputy Mayor of Wokingham Town Council was also at the event. 

Nick Burrows, partner at Blandy & Blandy and the firm’s chairman, said: “We believe that Wokingham is an excellent place to do business and, as a good number of colleagues will attest to, to live.

“We are delighted to be joining the professional and wider community in Wokingham, in support of our continued growth and to allow us to best serve the needs of both new and existing clients in the borough and surrounding areas such as Bracknell.

“Thank you again to those who joined us at our event – we look forward to working more closely with everyone and to being able to contribute to Wokingham’s success story over the coming months and years.”
