Wills, trusts and estate planning structures are important for all Australians, but particularly for individuals and business owners in the mining and resources sectors.
For high net worth clients, and specifically those with complex circumstances that can involve interests in other countries and therefore different jurisdictions, our legal advice is individually tailored and often developed in consideration of financial planning and taxation impacts.
We also assist anyone who may have simpler personal structures and requirements. The complexity and interplay of super (including insurances inside super), binding nominations, insurances and so on, results in even the simplest of personal circumstances warranting estate planning consideration and documentation to ensure your wishes are fulfilled.
Our overarching goal is to facilitate the best possible outcomes for our clients, therefore our Wills, trusts and estate planning legal services are often a collaborative matter that include working closely with our clients’ accountant and financial adviser.
