Blain Boland & Co Solicitors in Ellesmere Port, Willaston and Middlewich

When it comes to law firms, describing one as "established" or "new" is a far more subjective game of semantics than you might think. A ten-year-old hairdressing or photography studio on the high street could easily be considered a long established business. However, a fresh brand of bank or building society might be called "new" despite having existed for much longer.

With all the changes to legal aid and concepts such as Alternative Business Structures (ABS) coming into play, the way we perceive law firms is going to keep changing in the coming years. Yes, there are still a lot of law firms with more than a century of history behind them. But with all the new opportunities out there, the new rules, the ease of the internet, etc. we're seeing a lot more seasoned solicitors leave larger firms to set up on their own. Each individual solicitor may have a few decades of experience under their belt, but the name they choose for their firm will be unfamiliar and not easy to research.

Blain Boland & Co is actually a trading name of Blain Boland and Thomas Ltd. If you search for information on the firm you'll see the current Limited name was created as recently as 2008. However, the firm's website states the brand goes right back to 1979 where it apparently took over from another local firm - G E Taylor & Sons. You can check the history and specialities of the actual people within the various offices on the Law Society's website. The practice is registered with the Liverpool Law Society as well, but there doesn't seem to be any extra information provided there.

Blain Boland & Co

Despite stating an age of almost 40 years for their firm, the language around the site does not use that as a focus. In fact, quite the opposite. They consider themselves "a refreshing change from more traditional law firms" and have engaged (however mildly) with things such as social media.

This may have a lot to do with their current owners. From the available records, it seems that Mr Michael Blain and Mr David Boland actually left the firm a few years ago. Not long after, BB&Co were bought over by Jill Shields and Justin Culver of Wheelock Chambers who were only just celebrating the second anniversary of their own employment law and conveyancing firm's existence. In a statement at the time, Jill said:

"After working for law firms in the region for many years, I wanted to offer a fresh approach ... we've solved many legal headaches by providing just an hour of advice, at a fixed rate of £75."


The firm has the usual promotional language you would expect dotted around the main pages. They use words such as "comprehensive" and "diverse", as well as promising to provide clients with:

"... clear, practical, advice combined with an efficient and courteous service ..."


However what they don't make enough fuss about - and you might even miss it - is the wealth of basic, concise, and targeted articles they've created for both personal and business matters. Everything from "What To Do When Someone Dies" and "Lasting Power of Attorney" to "What to do at the End of Your Lease" and "Equality and Diversity Best Practices". Even just the handful of paragraphs in the "Civil Partnerships" article could save people a considerable amount of time and therefore expense when it comes to kicking off a case. It's core information, in layman's terms, without superfluous examples or padding. They're good.

Moreover, they also handle some case types that we rarely see targeted elsewhere such as Ecclesiastical & Canon Law. This means they can provide expert and experienced advice to Churches on legal matters whether they are an established denomination or independent. This includes Church property, trusts, and constitutions as well as the important Charity Law aspects of running a church.

Many firms seem to focus on the intangible parts of providing a service when writing their sales pitches. As always, the devil is in the details and most of the bits that impressed us about this firm were in the background.

A quick note on navigation though. The www.blainboland.co.uk address is the one we link to. The main variant of www.blainboland.com is owned but is currently blank, and neither of the typical hyphenated variants (www.blain-boland.co.uk or www.blain-boland.com) show anything either. There will never be a www.blainboland&co.co.uk created because web addresses can't have special characters such as "&". On top of that, it seems that the firm have signed up to be part of the National Solicitors network which provides them with a custom page on the network's website - www.nationalsolicitors.com/blain-boland/ - which also comes with an extra Twitter feed using @BlainBolandNS instead of the firm's official one @BlainBolandSols.

When you search for something like "blain boland solicitors", you'll also see the owner's other website www.wheelockchambers.com pop up in the results. They have a few extra niche sites such as www.weareconveyancers.com and www.weareemploymentlawyers.com too, but none of them link to to the site you really need which is the one we link to. So once you're on it, we highly recommend bookmarking it to make sure you come back to the right place each time.

General Notes: We haven't looked in depth at their recruitment program so are unaware of any job vacancies available. If you do want to build a career with Blain Boland & Co, then it is best to visit their site and try to find the correct phone/email contact details set aside for such if they exist. (Emailing a CV to their reception looks lazy.) Due to the complexities of case funding and the constant government cuts, it is always best to ask about things such as Legal Aid up front. Lastly, each law firm should state a registration number with their respective Law Society and/or their SRA number. It's usually at the bottom of every page. - www.blainboland.co.uk
