Protecting the wealth passed on to your beneficiaries
Inheritances are often lost or eroded due to estate claims or unnecessary taxes. These losses can often be avoided or minimised with careful estate planning.

We can also provide you with advice and assistance in incorporating Testamentary Trusts into your Wills, which will provide your beneficiaries with asset protection and tax advantages.

Our expert lawyers can review your existing entities (including your family trusts, discretionary trusts, companies and self-managed superannuation fund) to determine whether these entities have been structured in a way that minimises the likelihood of losing the wealth held by these entities. We can also provide you with advice about the entities you hold your investment assets in and the entities you should be trading through.
Estate planning and asset protection is critical for individuals from all walks of life as it ensures appropriate arrangements are in place to take care of your loved ones should you unexpectedly pass away. It may be as simple or complex as your needs dictate.
