Read what our customers are saying about us:
I first heard about BlandsLaw whilst attending a conference in Sydney on Social Media, and the importance of having a Social Media Policy in place. The information provided was extremely relevant to us as an organisation and we were able to implement a Policy quite soon afterwards. The staff were very easy to communicate with and didn’t make anything complicated. Thanks!!!

“As a new entrant into the Australian fertiliser market at early-stage commercialisation, it is vital that our legal advisors know our business and industry and can provide practical and up to date advice quickly and efficiently. I have found our relationship with Blands Law to be fantastic in terms of their responsiveness, ability to add commercial savvy to their legal advice and their focus on assisting us with risk assessment and mitigation. Blands Law are an extension of our team in Australia and I would not hesitate to recommend them to others looking for legal advice that goes hand in hand with commercial outcomes.”

“Andrew was great throughout the process. Within a very short time frame we managed to get our enterprise agreement approved and in time. Andrew was always attentive and understanding of the retail industry in which we operate and the difficulties around it. I will recommend Andrew to any retailer who needs help with HR law”. Natanel Harper, CEO, Magnolia-Silver
“Andrew is a skilled and knowledgeable legal professional with a thorough understanding of a number of areas of law including the changing face of employment law – a veritable minefield if not done well. Andrew’s friendly and relaxed approach appeals to most people and his lack of use of lawyer speak (goobledegook) makes it easy for his clients to understand what is important and what needs to be done as a matter of priority. We have a number of mutual clients who are very happy with his service.” Jo Hanlon, Owner Director, Edwardson Hanlon
“Andrew Bland is a consumate legal professional with a strong commercial focus.

“the policies provided by Blands Law were concise which I think is really appropriate for the SME sector. Sometimes you can get policies that go for pages and you just know that the staff will not read them. This defeats the purpose of good policies which is that people read and understand the information within them.
Thank you for the fantastic service. Fleur Scott, Senior Associate, HR Coach”
BlandsLaw recently assisted our company with a response letter to a letter of demand we had received.
Following the initial call, an exchange of emails and two lengthy phone conversations to clearly identify and discuss the issues. We were then forwarded an excellent response letter, drafted for our review.
With such quick turnaround and exceptional service, should we have the need, we have no hesitation in calling Andrew again. More importantly we would gladly recommend to others.
