Wills and Estate Planning

There's more to estate planning than simply having an up-to-date will. Our wills and estates lawyers will help ensure your estate is distributed according to your wishes.

Preparing a will and knowing it is properly constructed will give you peace of mind and ensure your assets are managed exactly as you intend.

Our wills and estates lawyers will construct your will according to the type and nature of your assets, and consider other factors such as whether a testamentary trust is more appropriate for your circumstances.

Estate planning

Life can be unpredictable and it's important to prepare for the unexpected. We can prepare a comprehensive estate plan that ensures you retain control of your assets, and decide who will make decisions on your behalf in the event of physical or mental disability, illness, injury or death.

We'll help you make informed decisions about estate planning issues, such as whether you should implement an enduring power of attorney or guardianship. We'll then draft the necessary documentation to put your plan into effect.

We can also assist with the appointment of a medical decision maker and advanced care directives.

Estate administration

Our lawyers provide expert advice and assistance on all aspects of deceased estates. This may include applications for probate or letters of administration; foreign grants; and dealing with foreign assets.

Estate litigation

Our team regularly deals with wills disputes and claims for greater provision. We encourage you to contact us for a no obligation initial call if you believe you are entitled to a greater provision under the terms of an estate. We can also assist with disputes that may arise with executors and beneficiaries.
