Estate Administration and Litigation

Estate Administration

The death of a loved one is a difficult time. To properly execute estate administration and litigation, most Executors will require professional assistance to effectively administer a deceased estate and ensure they have complied with their legal obligations.

  • Securing Grants of Probate or Letters of Administration (where there is no Will)
  • Liaising with the relevant institutions to identify assets
  • Administering a deceased estate
  • Liaising with the beneficiaries of the estate
  • Obtaining valuations of assets

  • Advising on taxation matters including arranging the preparation of any outstanding or necessary returns
  • Advising executors and trustees on their role and obligations

Estate Litigation

Every person has the right to dispose of their property as they see fit in their Will. In saying that, there is legislation in each State and Territory which recognises an obligation to provide for certain classes of people. Please contact us if you think that you have not been adequately provided for by a family member or a loved one.
