Wills & Estates

Introducing Our
Wills & Estates Team

Planning your Estate properly, with guidance from an experienced lawyer is very important. Without this clear legal advice there may be potentially serious implications for you and your loved ones. There are many milestones in your life, such as marriage, the birth of your children, house purchases or separation and divorce that will affect the way you want your assets distributed in the event of your death.

The intent of Estate Planning is to preserve and enhance the value of a person’s estate, and to avoid adverse consequences for intended beneficiaries. It is therefore important that planning of a person’s estate be properly addressed.

A Will is just one part of the process of documenting, implementing and achieving these objectives. Crucial estate planning decisions are now often made in the choice of financial products such as superannuation and insurance, and any ownership structures chosen for business and investment assets, to ensure the protection of assets and the minimisation of tax. Estate planning needs to be compatible with a person’s wealth accumulation, asset protection, retirement, care, business and business succession plans.

  • Preparing Wills
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Appointments of Enduring Guardians
