Reading and Henley based solicitors’ practice and Thames Tap partner Blandy & Blandy has been ranked among the UK’s top planning law firms.

Planning magazine’s 2022 Planning Law Survey put the firm in joint 15th place, one of the highest rankings of a regional firm in a table traditionally dominated by national and City operators.

The survey involves peer-led interviews and research.

Planning partner Karen Jones (pictured) said: “Blandy & Blandy is home to one of the most experienced planning and environmental law teams in the region and we pride ourselves on providing significant expertise and an unrivalled service in this specialist area of law.

“We believe that our extensive knowledge of the Thames Valley, our long-term involvement in key projects and our established relationships with other leading professional services firms helps to further set us apart.

“Of course, we also work closely with colleagues across our firm, with dedicated expertise in areas including commercial property, dispute resolution and venue licensing.”

Blandy & Blandy is also ranked as a top tier firm in both Planning and Environment categories in the UK’s leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500.

The Legal 500 highlights Karen Jones as a leading individual in her field.
