Estate Administration

Estate Administration

We are recognised leaders in estate administration, not just in our forensic understanding of the law but because of our warm, personal approach.

The estates of a deceased person are often complex and are certainly always unique in the problems, issues and disputes that can arise.

Our advice is not limited to simply obtaining a grant of probate or letters of administration on intestacy. We provide detailed estate administration accounts and work with clients and beneficiaries to maximise benefits by providing expert advice on superannuation and asset transfers.

We assist our clients to collect in the estate assets from various institutions and liaise with the estate’s creditors where appropriate.

Dealing with the estate assets is not limited to simply collecting in bank accounts, transferring property or dealing with the deceased’s shareholdings. It often requires expert legal advice in relation to the deceased’s business affairs, partnership interests, dealing with family discretionary trusts and private companies.

We also have the advantage of being able to draw on expert tax advice within McCullough Robertson to assist our clients to navigate the complex taxation implications for both the estate and the beneficiaries.

We know that for most people, dealing with the estate of a loved one can be hard.  We shoulder the burden so that you can have peace of mind and plan effectively for the future.
