Wills and Estates

Lavan's Wills and Estates team provides a full range of services associated with the preparation of wills, estate planning and administration, and contentious estate matters.

Our highly experienced lawyers often work closely with third party professionals, such as accountants and financial planners, to ensure that your assets are protected in the event of your illness or death.

We can also provide advice to ensure that both you and your assets are looked after to your satisfaction should you become legally incapable of making relevant decisions during your lifetime.

We draw on Lavan’s Family Law team to ensure that clients who have blended families are properly advised on how to structure their affairs to minimise the potential for later disputes.
