Stone Group Lawyers have a specialised Wills & Estate Planning practice designed to help our clients make important decisions about how their assets are to be dealt with.
We provide extensive services including wills, powers of attorney (both health and financial), strategic advice on asset and wealth protection strategies in succession planning, as well as key expertise in the management of superannuation assets and investments. We have a keen appreciation of succession planning and aim to ensure that all assets, whether held locally, nationally or internationally, held personally, or in trust or via superannuation, are effectively managed to ensure our client’s wishes are protected.
There are a number of ways to hold, use and protect your assets, such as the use of testamentary trusts and superannuation arrangements, including self-managed superannuation funds. Our experienced team are able to provide you with comprehensive advice on the most suitable options for you and, pending your approval, make it happen.
In addition to our planning services, we also have dedicated estate litigation practitioners who have extensive experience in assisting executors and trustees administering estates the subject of a claim, supporting beneficiaries in defending claims and advising individuals who may wish to bring a claim against the estate or assets of a family member or domestic partner. In doing so, we strive to guide parties towards resolution in order to avoid what can be debilitating financial and emotional costs.
Should you wish to increase your wealth, we can also advise on structuring options, financing arrangements, risk management and commercial and property transactions.
