Deceased Estates and Estate Litigation

Our Deceased Estates Group is experienced in assisting executors, administrators and beneficiaries to prepare a range of probate documentation and applications and administering deceased estates. We also advise potential claimants or executors on their entitlements and options in contesting an estate or responding to a claim and providing practical guidance for all matters falling in between.

We tailor our level of service to you, attending to the full range of administration, or simply advising and preparing documentation as required.
