Our Wills and Estates team offers comprehensive legal advice in respect of all aspects of wills and estate matters including estate planning, estate administration, estate litigation and guardian & administration matters.
Specifically, our team provides expert advice in relation to:
We equip our clients with a fundamental understanding of succession planning and work with them to make sure that all aspects of their estates are planned for in the present and future, to ensure that their intentions are carried out in an effective manner. Our experienced Wills and Estates team also works closely with our tax, property, commercial and corporate teams to ensure that our strategies and outcomes are tailored to our clients’ specific needs.
Administering an estate of loved one can be a daunting and complicated task. We aim to eliminate the stress and delay involved by administering deceased estates in a timely and cost-effective manner so that our clients can move on with their lives.
Even the best laid succession plans do not always come to fruition which can result in complex and costly litigation that will delay the administration of an estate. Our Wills and Estates team has invaluable contested estates experience which enables them to provide pragmatic and sensible advice to their clients.
Finally, for those clients who, are faced with a life without capacity or a family member that has special needs, we work closely with them and their family or carer, to minimise the issues and stress, as well as potential litigation, that may be presented to them.
