Power of Attorney

Appointing a Power of Attorney is an important part of the estate planning process. In Victoria, there are two very important documents to consider – the Enduring Power of Attorney and the Appointment of Medical Treatment Decision Maker.

Business succession planning

Whether you have a straightforward [Self Managed Super Fund], a business, or a complex series of inter-related trusts and companies, it pays to take the time to ensure that control of your wealth is passed to your intended beneficiaries.

Our lawyers work with you to map out succession plans that cover business or personal transition arrangements, superannuation, wills and estate planning. In particular, we have experience working with small to medium-sized businesses to structure the business owners’ commercial and personal affairs in a way that provides their families with a financially healthy legacy.

Probate and estate administration

Dealing with the estate administration process can be a difficult time, especially after the recent loss of a loved one. We guide you through the process if you have been nominated to administer the estate of a Will maker. We have prepared a guide to estate administration and acting as an executor which you can read here.
