Estate Planning, Estate Administration and Disputes, Trusts and Superannuation

Life is more complicated today than ever before with complex family situations and personal or business assets which can include superannuation, family trusts, partnerships, companies and digital assets. We can assist you with your estate planning to ensure your estate will be distributed and managed according to your wishes.

We also understand how difficult it can be to deal with the complex estate issues that arise when dealing with the loss of a loved one. Whether you are a beneficiary or an executor, our experienced legal team can provide you with clear and expert guidance on the best way forward.

If an estate dispute, such as a Will challenge or family provision claim, arises, our understanding of the legal issues, as well as dynamics of family relationships, ensures we can provide advice to mediate and resolve the dispute in a time-efficient and cost-effective manner.

We also provide comprehensive advice, and ongoing assistance if required, in relation to Aged Care and Elder Law.
