Leading Thames Valley law firm Blandy & Blandy LLP has experienced a rise in demand from clients with legal requirements overseas, according to partner Nick Burrows.
“In an increasingly globalised market, a growing proportion of our clients operate or have dealings with parties outside of the UK,” he explained.
“Throughout the past 12 months we have continued to see increased demand for work to be undertaken internationally. As members of the Law Firm Network we are well placed to refer our clients, whether businesses or private individuals, to trusted and like-minded firms internationally and to offer a more cost-effective and responsive service than many City or national firms.”
Approaching its 30th anniversary, the Law Firm Network is recognised as a leading international network in Chambers Global Guide. Blandy & Blandy LLP is one of over 50 member firms worldwide.
Burrows continued: “We also advise a growing number of overseas based clients investing in or establishing a presence here in the UK. We can advise on a broad range of areas including incorporation, mergers and acquisitions, employment law and business immigration, property, contracts, data protection, intellectual property and disputes, as well as private client matters.”
In 2016 Blandy & Blandy LLP hosted the Network’s three-day EMEA Conference in the Thames Valley, with aspects of the Conference taking place at locations including the firm’s offices, Windsor Castle, on the Thames and at Cliveden. The firm welcomed guest speakers from leading organisations including United Overseas Bank, KPMG, Clearswift, Cushman & Wakefield and the University of Reading.
