There are a number of ways to hold, use and protect your assets, such as the use of testamentary trusts and superannuation arrangements, including self-managed superannuation funds. Our experienced team of estate lawyers is able to provide you with comprehensive advice on the most suitable options for you and, pending your approval, make it happen.
In estate and succession planning, we help business and asset owners, and other individuals put everything in place to ensure that the right people get what they should, regardless of what the future brings. This takes insight into issues such as taxation implications, future care needs and family requirements. It also requires wills, powers of attorney and other instruments that will stand up to scrutiny.
