|Our lawyers are experienced in setting up trusts for estate and tax planning purposes. Where necessary, our lawyers work alongside tax specialists and private wealth professionals to provide the necessary structures to best serve the clients’ needs. Our lawyers have a good international network that allows us to assist clients in utilising offshore structures for their overseas ventures, if required.
We are able to assist clients in the drafting of wills to ensure that the clients’ estates are distributed in accordance with the clients’ wishes.
Our lawyers are able to assist in the extracting of grants of probate or letters of administration, and the clearance of estate duty.
Our lawyers have also been involved in contentious probate proceedings, for instance where the testamentary capacity of the testators have been called into question, where the validity of the will has been challenged, and where allegations of intermeddling by the executor have been made.
