Contested Estates We understand that sometimes disputes which arise following the passing of a loved one lead to an estate being contested. We provide a professional and compassionate service to both executors, beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries when the fairness and equitability of a will is contested. Our lawyers offer expert advice in the three main areas of disputes including: challenging the validity of a will, claiming further provision from an estate and challenging a transaction. We are also able to provide advice in situations where, for a variety of reasons, the deceased has not left a will.

Estate Planning We provide expert estate planning advice to ensure your assets are protected and can help you develop a detailed estate plan to support your beneficiaries and create favourable tax outcomes.

Legal issues can often arise in the administration of a deceased’s estate and our lawyers will provide their expert advice to ease the burden in times of difficulty. Probate letters are usually required before estate administration can progress. We can assist you with obtaining these letters from the courts as well as providing support and advice with all other matters regarding probate and estate administration.
