On 9 March 2018 John Fradgley and Dan O’Connor of Bell Legal Group’s Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning team hosted a seminar focusing upon Enduring Powers of Attorney: Pitfalls and Urban Myths.
The breakfast seminar was held at the beautiful Southport Golf Club and dealt with this deceptively tricky and complex area.
John and Dan discussed how Enduring Powers of Attorney may relate to:
- Self-managed Superannuation Funds (SMSFs)
- Partnerships of Individuals
- Directors of Companies

The best way to ensure that the Enduring Power of Attorney does what you intend it to do is to get expert legal advice from the outset. Drafting special provisions tailored to your needs can prevent serious legal issues and great expense later on.
