Proper estate administration can help your family survive severe financial issues following the death of a loved one, but only if it is maintained by legal experts.

Our estate administration lawyers will develop solutions unique to your circumstances and provide guidance and valuable insight into the specialised field of estate planning.

Although no one wants to think about their death, it is inevitable and planning for it will ensure that your family and dependents are looked after once you’re gone.

Having a last will and testament in place can help protect the financial interest of your heirs. However, it’s important that your will is drafted by an attorney who not only specialised in the drafting wills, but who also understands your unique needs and wants.


Trusts are a sure way to preserve wealth from generation to generation, however, they do hold tax implications that need to be explored should you wish to create one.

Our attorneys will assist you with the creation of trusts and the administration of trust assets, as well as advise you on the tax implications of trusts.
