Estate planning and administration

Although most of us try to avoid thinking about it, we all need to make plans for dealing with the assets we will leave behind when we die.  Taking the time to prepare and implement an estate plan during your lifetime can save a lot of time, money and heartache for those you leave behind.

We can provide you with the legal advice you need to prepare and implement a plan to deal with your assets.  We can also assist with the administration of estates after death. 

We provide specialist advice about:

  • Your will
  • The advantages and disadvantages a family trust would have for your estate plan
  • Enduring powers of attorney
  • Administering estates
  • Relationship property agreements
  • Gifting
