Why choose us?

What we do

At Clerwood Legal we only offer specific commercial legal services for businesses, focusing on what we are good at and conscientiously referring clients to other sources of expertise when we judge that that is in the client’s interests.

 We strive to:-

  • offer a tailored service by applying real life practical experience gained in industry
  • provide a value for money, timely, appropriate and personal service
  • build a long term relationship with the client, to provide appropriate and effective advice as he client’s business grows.

How we work with you

The words ‘legal fees’ strike fear into many people’s hearts and they are the reason why many people – particularly those who are working independently or starting small businesses – often avoid approaching a solicitor. The traditional method of charging clients is by time spent. Too often, before they know it, a client is faced with a huge bill. We believe that this method of charging clients is outdated and unnecessary for the nature of services we offer.

Clerwood Legal provides practical legal and commercial support to the high professional standards that would be expected from a large legal firm but on a more personal and cost-effective basis – but we do this at fixed prices, quoted and agreed with the client before we start work.

What our clients say

“Gavin was a very calm and swift advisor for a shareholder agreement we had to set up.
I was glad I was given his contact details by my accountant.
Gavin got in touch immediately and set up a meeting and advised knowledgeably and wisely on all the fine details that needed addressed.
Much appreciated.”

Beryl Preuschmann, CEO and Founder at spintopMEDIA 

“Avarix were introduced to Gavin by Co-operative Development Scotland to assist us through the start-up process. Gavin’s specialist knowledge of the sector helped guide us through the process, something that could have been a real minefield for us. Every step of the process was clearly defined and working with both Gavin and his associate Gill was a pleasure. We’ve continued to work with Gavin and Gill, using the interactive workshops that they deliver. Again, these have been incredibly helpful to Avarix and helped develop our understanding of Co-ops and how to get the most out of your business.”

Tony Hamill, Director, Avarix Limited
