A Reading-based law firm has acquired a business in Oxfordshire.
Blandy & Blandy has announced the acquisition of Collins Dryland & Thorowgood (CDT), based in Henley-on-Thames.
The office in south Oxfordshire adds up to the 283-year-old firm’s bases in Reading and London.
As part of the move Blandy & Blandy will welcome CDT’s staff, increasing the firm’s headcount by over 10%. William Fursman will join as a consultant, while Luke McMath will join as a partner.
Blandy & Blandy’s chairman Brenda Long said: “CDT is a long-established firm with a solid reputation for client service and is very much part of the Henley establishment.
“Blandy & Blandy also has longstanding connections with the area and a number of significant clients in Henley and this merger of our operations and greater investment in Henley will widen access to our full range of legal services and enable more clients to benefit from our partner-led approach and commitment to client care.”
