Estate Planning

When it comes to estate planning, many people make assumptions about what will happen in the event of their death or incapacitation. For example, people assume that their superannuation or business will just pass directly to their next of kin, or whoever they have nominated in their will.

But it’s not always this simple, and effective estate planning goes well beyond just making a will.

Without a properly constructed estate plan, there can be devastating effects on those loved ones left behind.

At MV Law, our estate planning lawyers work in collaboration with you and your trusted advisors (if required), taking a holistic and tailored approach that considers every aspect of your current circumstances to ensure that your estate planning objectives are fully achieved. We ensure that your assets will be distributed how you want and in the best interests of your beneficiaries, taking into consideration the most tax-effective methods.

We understand that estate planning is often a delicate and confronting process, which is why our team helps you to feel completely at ease from start to finish.
