Leading Thames Valley law firm Blandy & Blandy has once again been named as a top tier firm for ‘Private Wealth’ Law in the newly published 2022 edition of Chambers High Net Worth (HNW) Guide.
Blandy & Blandy is one of only two firms in Reading and the only firm in Henley-on-Thames to be recognised in the top tier.
Jonathan Gater and Caroline Casagranda, partners in the firm’s Wills, Probate, Tax & Trusts team, are both individually recommended, as is consultant solicitor Graham Benwell, who is named as a ‘senior statesperson’.
In the Guide Blandy & Blandy is singled out for the firm’s “longstanding reputation” and “the strength of its private client work”, with one source saying: “They are excellent lawyers and the service is second to none. They are first class in terms of value for money. They are technical, collaborative and as good as anyone.”
Other comments reference the team’s “excellent efficiency”, “wide reach of expertise” and ability to “deal with complexities in a clear and straightforward manner.”
Jonathan Gater is praised for his “breadth of knowledge and experience” and “common-sense approach,” while Caroline Casagranda is credited for being “particularly well regarded for her client service” and “easy and straightforward to deal with.” Graham Benwell is described as “always excellent”.
Caroline Casagranda said: “Well done and thank you to everyone in our fantastic Wills, Probate, Tax & Trusts team for their hard work and dedication to our clients and their needs, during what continues to be an incredibly challenging period for all.”
