Legal Services

Blanchards Law

Blanchards Law is a private client practice, specialising in Family Law; this area includes divorce, financial, cohabitation, trust and inheritance issues, child custody, access or contact, and child abduction.

We deal with both international and domestic matters, having particular expertise in appealing against previous orders and setting aside orders made in financial proceedings.

Family Law is a difficult and sensitive area; it’s often very personal. Clients frequently comment upon our ability to empathise with their situation but also to provide a very high quality of service.

Blandy & Blandy

With offices in Reading, Henley-on-Thames and London, Blandy & Blandy LLP is recognised as one of the region’s leading law firms.

The Thames Valley has been our home since 1733 and we have the heritage and reputation that comes with this longevity.

We advise clients on all aspects of their personal and family lives, including Residential Property, Family law and Wills, Probate Tax and Trusts.

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.

Our partners and many of our associate solicitors are acknowledged as experts by the two major legal directories, Chambers UK Guide 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’.

Blandy & Blandy enjoys a reputation for high-quality, high value expertise, providing a partner-led service and outstanding client care. We are often regarded as a strong and cost-effective alternative to a national or City firm. As members of the global Law Firm Network, we also advise clients operating internationally.

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.

Edward Briscoe

Edward Briscoe MIPW has 6+ years post qualification experience in assisting individuals with Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs). He is a Member of the Institiute of Professional Will Writers and holds professional indemnity insurance arranged through them.

Edward lives halfway between Marlow and Henley but attends clients in their homes or at their work place. The first meeting (initial 40 mins with no obligation) confirms identity (to avoid fraud), gathers data, notes commitments and establishes an individual’s capacity to make Deeds.

Reports or attendance notes follow that first meeting; these are for amendment, correction and reflection. Once detail and wishes are confirmed documents are drafted and when approved finals are printed ready for clients to make Deeds. This results in our second meeting so completion is supervised and an independent witness is available to record the event. Wills require two witnesses so the path to the Deed is eased.
