private client, legal issues

Our team of dedicated experts understand that having to deal with an issue which warrants involving a solicitor can be both stressful and confusing, leaving many people feeling overwhelmed in what can already be a difficult time. Our team are known for their friendliness and professionalism, in a blend which allows our customers to feel better about the circumstances they’re dealing with.  We endeavour to explain the law in terms our clients can understand, as well as completing all legal formalities on your behalf, in a timely and expert manner.

Our services

We offer a range of services which cover most areas of the law that our clients need.  In maintaining relationships with our clients, we aim to be there for any legal problem which you may require help with. Our commitment to our clients means that if you encounter a problem which our services do not cover, we can also act as a gateway to getting the specialist advice you require.

Wills and Estates

Without a Will, it will be determined by law how and where your assets and possessions will be distributed once you have passed away.  This process is lengthy, and can involve a great deal of stress and money for grieving friends and family.  This is on top of the likelihood that your estate will not be divided the way you may wish it to have been.  Careful drafting of Wills is important to ensure there is no confusion after your passing, and must be signed by an independent witness to be deemed valid.  Our full Wills service offers advice on creating and updating your Will, as well as helping you store it safely.

Expert Executry Solicitors

We know that it can be hard to deal with the possessions of a friend or family member once they have passed away, however, our team are here to make sure that the experience is a stress free as possible.  We will take care of all the steps required after their passing, including registering the death, and managing the distribution of their assets, whether in accordance with the law, or to the instructions of a Will.  We endeavour to deal with the formalities swiftly and efficiently, to allow you time and space to grieve.

Power of Attorney Solicitors

It is a common assumption that is a problem which can be dealt with in later life, a misconception which leads many people to leaving it too late to do anything about. Illness and accidents can strike at any time, and no one is immune. Being incapacitated doesn't mean that you can't control your future, as long as you assign Power of Attorney. Power of Attorney is a legal document, which allows you to entrust someone to take care of your business and finances, should the need occur.

Guardianship Orders

If a loved one suffers from an accident, or suddenly becomes ill, relatives and close friends can apply, under law, for a Guardianship Order, allowing them to make decisions about their finances, as well as their welfare.  A complex area of the law, Guardianship Orders can be made simpler by dealing with lawyers who are experts in this area, and at Claphams, you know you are dealing with lawyers you can trust.

Conveyancing Solicitors

Whether for business or personal needs, our team of lawyers can help you through what will likely be the biggest transaction you will be involved in making.  Both buyers and sellers want to make sure they’re receiving the best deal, as well as making the right decisions to benefit them.  Our extensive knowledge of Newton Mearns and the surrounding areas is unparalleled, and our expert negotiators will strive to make sure you get the best deal.

Commercial Leases

A commercial lease is a document that must be thoroughly examined before it is signed, due to potentially restrictive terms which can affect the running of your business.  We have experience advising both landlords and tenants of all areas involving commercial leases.  We will explain terms in a way that you can understand, and how they will affect you and your business.

Expert Divorce & Family Lawyers

Divorce and Family Law can be complex for many reasons, and it is often important to make sure that matters are dealt with quickly and professionally to minimise disruption or upset, especially to children.  We offer sensitive support in order to help you deal with these situations properly, and you can feel safe in knowing that all matters will be held in the strictest confidence.

Whether you are an employer or an employee, navigating the complexities of settlement agreements can be overwhelming. Our lawyers will meticulously review the terms, explaining each provision in clear, concise language, so you understand the implications fully. We strive to secure the best possible outcome for you, ensuring your rights are safeguarded and that the agreement aligns with your objectives.
