Estate Planning Lawyers
One of the most valuable outcomes of thoughtful estate planning is peace of mind. As expert Estate Planning Lawyers, at Aitken we have the experience to handle a wide range of issues that can arise when preparing an estate plan. Our vast and long term involvement in this area (including presenting seminars to the profession), allows Aitken Lawyers to weigh up the different options available to create the most appropriate outcome for our clients and their particular circumstances which reflects their philosophies and wishes.
From wills, discretionary trusts, testamentary trusts, superannuation, powers of attorney, statement of wishes and appointments of enduring guardianship, through to probate, estate disputes, and private ancillary funds, Aitkens’ experienced Estate Planning Lawyers have helped generations of clients in all “shapes and sizes” and assets, located all around the world with their estate planning.
Aitkens’ Estate Planning Lawyers also have extensive experience in probate and estate administration. A grant of probate is an authorisation by the Supreme Court for the legal representative of your estate (for example the executor nominated under your will) to administer a deceased estate.
For many decades Aitken Lawyers has helped generations of families in dealing with loved ones’ deaths and their estates. We have therefore seen first hand how a considered estate plan can reduce the stress on your family, and the legal representative of your estate (the executor named in your will) in administering your estate.
Furthermore, our detailed understanding of business succession planning enables us to devise viable exit strategies, assisting with your needs in retiring from your business as well as seamlessly transitioning your business to a relative or external purchaser.
Our Estate Planning Lawyers are also experienced in dealing with issues surrounding overseas residents and overseas estate plans. To make the right choice for your family, talk to us about your current and future estate planning needs today.
