COVID-19 and Estate Planning

Estate Planning services available for those with urgent needs

The impact COVID-19 is having on our community is unprecedented. With job losses, social distancing and the very real threat of community transmission, no-one is unaffected. We are all in this together.

Before March this year, we know many people considered estate planning as “something I’ll get to one day”. Now, they are concerned that they may not have appropriate planning in place to protect their family and loved ones.

We are committed to helping members of the community through this challenging time, which is why we have committed all available resources to prioritising estate planning for clients with urgent needs. The areas we can assist with include:

  • your Will;
  • an Enduring Power of Attorney, appointing an attorney to make financial and personal/health decisions for you, if you are unable to do so;
  • guardianship arrangements for your children; and
  • business, company and trust succession.

The health and well-being of our valued clients and our staff is paramount. Stringent health protocols have been implemented at our office, and remote conferencing via telephone, Skype, Facetime and other methods is available.
