Estate Planning

You work hard to build your wealth and accumulate your assets. It is important not to lose them on your death or incapacity or to unintended beneficiaries, tax, creditors or family law settlements.

At Briese Lawyers, we can help you with all areas of Estate Planning, including:

  • Effective transfer of assets to children, grandchildren and other beneficiaries
  • Protecting inheritances from creditors and family breakdown
  • Minimising tax payable on inheritances
  • Managing financial and personal affairs upon loss of mental capacity using Enduring Powers of Attorney and Advanced Health Directives
  • Establishing Testamentary Trusts

We also act on behalf of the Executors of deceased Estates in the administration of Estates, in a timely and cost effective manner. This involves the following Estate administration services:

  • Probate applications or letters of administration
  • The transfer and realisation of assets
  • The payment of debts
  • Discharging the trustees' obligations
