About Guillaumes LLP, Solicitors Surrey

 

Now in both Weybridge and Esher

 
In 2007, Weybridge’s two most prominent and established legal practices, Guillaumes Solicitors and Gosling & Wilkinson, succeeded in merging.   
In June 2013 Guillaumes expanded by opening a new office on Esher High Street in place of our Church Street Weybridge office, but retaining our main office at Ibex House, Baker Street, Weybridge.  
Guillaumes Solicitors was established in 1836, and located in London and the South East, before settling in Weybridge, Surrey, in the 1950s.  
Gosling & Wilkinson were established in Weybridge in the late 19th century, before occupying the Church Street offices since about 1905.  
The two firms have a long and wide experience, reflected in our private client and commercial portfolios.  
Guillaumes therefore has the expertise to manage substantial and complex transactions in most areas of legal work.  
We offer a high quality service, irrespective of the matter, and if not already a valued client, we look forward to welcoming you to Guillaumes.

When going through a divorce, it helps to have the assistance of an experienced professional who understands your situation.  
Finding herself in that situation, RP turned to Guillaumes on the strength of a recommendation from her family’s solicitor and, although the divorce itself is not yet finalised, the service she has received has already prompted her to recommend the firm to others.  
Dealing with Guillaumes partner Carolynn Tan, RP finds that the firm not only keeps in regular contact with her but responds to her telephone calls quickly and efficiently.  
She says: “Guillaumes are very understanding and non-judgemental. I am able to talk with them in a friendly way, rather than in a business-like manner, as they are very approachable."  
“I have already recommended them to other people.”  
Wife  
   
"I was impressed with the professional way Carolynn Tan dealt with my divorce. She handled the, at times, extremely challenging opposition with integrity and professionalism. Carolynn made an intolerable situation more bearable. Thank you."  
Husband  
   
“I admire Guillaumes for guiding me firmly, yet gently, through the daunting and difficult divorce journey, which at times I thought would never end. They have always maintained a professional, highly knowledgeable and resolute support.”  
Wife  
   
“My divorce was particularly complicated, but miraculously Carolynn Tan managed to sort out everything in a calm, efficient manner. Carolynn had amazing patience, and dealt with my whole situation professionally.  
“With solicitors like Carolynn Tan, it is possible to come out of a very hostile situation and end up with a positive result. I cannot recommend Carolynn enough. There were so many complications, but she dealt with each one calmly (and helped me to feel calm, when there were times I thought I would never get through it).”  
Husband  
   
Dealing with the estate of a loved one is a task few people relish, but having on board a solicitor who is both understanding and approachable can make a significant difference to the situation  
This was certainly the experience of RB when she was dealing with the estate of her late mother, who passed away last year.  
RB had in the past worked in an administrative role for Gosling & Wilkinson and already knew the Guillaumes name well, long before the two firms merged.  
In fact, her experience at solicitors’ practices had already given her an understanding of how the probate process worked, particularly as she had helped clients with probate matters herself.  
She has nothing but praise for Guillaumes and, in particular, partner Neil Sapsed, who handled her mother’s estate.  
She says: “Neil was absolutely super to talk to. He did everything I had asked him to and he had even answered my questions before I got there."  
“Neil was extremely approachable. When I used to work for solicitors, I loved to break down boundaries with clients, which worked, and this is what they did."  
“They never kept me waiting; my messages would always go through and my calls were always returned. If Neil wasn’t available, then his secretary, Jan, always made herself available to me.”  
RB was so pleased with the service she received that she has already recommended Guillaumes. She is currently dealing with the team in a power of attorney matter on behalf of a neighbour.  
She says: “I really wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. They have good values.”
