Estates & Trusts
The planning and administration of wills, estates, and trusts is an increasingly complex area due to a number of factors, including the transfer of wealth of our aging population, evolving economic conditions, and the multi-cultural and extended nature of the modern family.
The experienced lawyers in our Estates and Trusts Practice Group skillfully handle the creation and preservation of wealth, including estate and trust planning, administration, or estate litigation.
An estate plan is important for everyone.
It is not just the wealthy who need to consider estate planning. Our clients are from all walks of life. Whether it’s as direct as leaving everything to a spouse or requiring a corporate restructuring to allow appropriate succession planning, we guide our clients with skill and practical advice.
In developing an estate plan, we are forward-thinking and strategic. We look ahead and help clients retain as much wealth as possible to pass to future generations. We consider tax consequences and other legal requirements in order to accomplish the appropriate planning. Our goal is to provide the peace of mind that comes from knowing property and other assets are well protected.
Our strong reputation is built on a track record of success. We have the experience and skill to deal with even the most complex situations. We assist in general estate planning, including the drafting of wills, trusts, enduring powers of attorney, personal directives, and probate applications, and we have proficiency in dispute resolution and estate litigation. We are trusted advisors who can skillfully navigate domestic, cross-border, and multijurisdictional estate and trust matters.
