Wills, Estate Planning & Administration and Contested Wills

We aim to work with you to formulate an estate plan to ensure your hard-earned assets and relationships are preserved for the future. Our lawyers are trained to develop the most modern wills to protect your assets in all their forms, including superannuation, property, shares and equity in business enterprise. We work effectively with your accountant and financial planner to ensure your succession plan minimises taxes and is tailored to your unique needs. Getting your estate plan right from the beginning will inevitably reduce legal expenses and taxes for your family in the long run.

Over time relationships change therefore we can design an estate plan to ensure that future changes in your family structure do not effect the transition of your assets. In particular, if your children marry and divorce there could be significant ramifications on how your assets are divided.

Asset protection is just one of many objectives of estate planning. Estate plans can also incorporate who you wish to elect to make decisions regarding your health and medical care in the event you become incapable of making those decisions. You may also wish to stipulate conditions to ensure your dependent children are properly cared for. These are just some examples of the many elements we can help you incorporate into a holistic estate plan.
It is also important to develop an estate planning strategy to prevent any potential disputes in the future.
