The bespoke nature of estate planning and the transfer of wealth during one's lifetime, upon death, and even after death makes sound, up-to-date legal advice imperative.

To assist our clients with ensuring their objectives for the administration and succession of their wealth are achieved, we provide advice on a number of estate planning structures, including, joint ownership of assets, wills, various types of trusts, life insurance, Executive Entities and Private Trust Companies. We also provide specific advice on making provisions for the ongoing care and financial support of minors, persons with disabilities and other dependents.

In all the planning, don't forget to plan for yourself.

A properly planned estate = Peace of mind.
