Our services

We provide a range of legal services that many of us will need throughout our lives. Think of us like a legal GP, helping you and your family to cope with important, and often essential, legal matters. As part of our dedication to client care, we also act as a gateway to more specialist advice if and when necessary.

Experienced Wills and Estates Lawyers Giffnock

If you don’t have a Will, the law will determine how your personal possessions and assets are distributed after you’ve passed away. This can involve a great deal of time, stress and money for your loved ones, and is unlikely to mean your possessions are dealt with in line with your wishes. That’s why it’s important to write your true intentions down in a legally binding Will. Wills need to be carefully drafted to avoid confusion; they also must be signed in the presence of a witness to be considered valid. We provide a full Wills service – including providing advice on creating or updating your Will, helping you to draft the document, and keeping it safely stored.

Executry Solicitors Giffnock

We understand how difficult it is to start dealing with a loved one’s possessions after they’ve passed. Our executry service aims to take this burden off your shoulders. We can take care of all the necessary steps after someone has died – from registering their death to managing the distribution of their personal possessions and assets in line with their Will or in accordance with the law. We’ll make sure all the legal formalities are dealt with promptly and without problems. Don’t hesitate to contact our compassionate team to find out how we can help.

Power of Attorney Solicitors Giffnock

Many people believe that creating a Power of Attorney is something that can wait until later in life. Unfortunately, by then it might be too late. An accident or illness can happen at any time and to any of us. If you’re incapacitated as a result, a Power of Attorney will ensure you maintain control over your future. A Power of Attorney is a legal document that gives someone you trust the authority to make important decisions about your care and finances. Please contact us if you’d like to know more about the benefits of creating a Power of Attorney. If you decide to go ahead, we can help you write and register the document.

Expert Guardianship Lawyers Giffnock

If someone you care about suddenly becomes incapacitated because of an accident or illness, as a relative or close friend you can apply for a Guardianship Order to be able to make decisions about their welfare and finances. The law governing Guardianship Orders is complex, but at Claphams we’ll break it down so you fully understand what’s involved in the application process and in becoming a guardian. If a Guardianship Order is in the best interests of your loved one, we’ll assist you with your application and can provide ongoing care and support to you in your role as guardian.

Residential and Commercial Property Lawyers Giffnock

Buying and selling a property, whether for business or personal needs, is one of the biggest transactions you’ll be involved with. Naturally, buyers and sellers want to be confident they’re making the right decision and taking the right steps. At Claphams, we’ll use our extensive knowledge of the local residential and commercial property markets in Giffnock and the larger Southside area of Glasgow, along with our expert negotiating skills, to ensure you get the best possible deal.

Expert Commercial Leases Lawyers Giffnock

Commercial leases need to be read with great care before signing; the terms can be restrictive and can commit your business for a long time. Our team regularly advise landlords and tenants on all aspects of commercial leases. We’ll cut through the jargon and explain what the provisions mean for your business in straightforward terms, or help you draft a lease that delivers the biggest benefits for your company.

There are many circumstances which might result in civil litigation, for example a personal injury or dispute with your employer. If you’ve suffered because of someone else’s unlawful actions, civil litigation can help you get answers, justice and compensation. However, these proceedings can also be costly, time consuming and stressful. Whatever the nature of your dispute, we’ll offer pragmatic advice that concentrates on your best interests.
