Wills and Probate
Preparation of your Will is extremely significant and personal and it is important that you accurately record your intentions. If you do not have a properly drawn and professionally prepared Will, you leave open the prospect of disputes and in some instances Court proceedings involving conflicts and potential claims by Beneficiaries and other family members.
In making a Will it is important to consider a number of matters, which include the appointment of the Executor to administer your estate, specific bequests of personal possessions, care for young children, the establishment of testamentary trusts for family beneficiaries, disposition of assets such as real estate etc.
Companies and Trusts
Companies and Trusts
In this complex business environment many questions arise regarding the suitability of incorporating Companies or establishing Trusts to own property or to conduct a business or other commercial enterprise, rather than personal ownership. The decision can have a significant bearing on the liability for stamp duty, land tax, taxation implications and issues of limited liability for Directors.
Zaitman Lawyers in association with your Accountant can advise you on the implications of establishing and working within a corporate or trust structure in comparison to having assets in personal names.
We provide wide ranging services within this legal area including:
Incorporation of Companies
Preparation of Shareholder Agreements
