Planning For The Future, Providing For Loved Ones
Estate and incapacity planning is unique to each individual and family. While legal mechanisms exist to reach certain objectives, their use must be tailored to each client’s needs.
- Estate planning: The firm’s estate lawyers discuss the most appropriate estate plan for each client, including the inclusion of assets within a will and the preparation of trusts. Firm counsel work closely with the client’s accountant with regards to complex financial issues.
- Family trusts: As part of estate planning, the firm’s lawyers may recommend a family trust in order to provide for business succession planning.
- Incapacity planning: Firm counsel discuss with clients the options they have to plan for a time when they lack the mental capacity to make their own financial, legal, medical or personal care decisions. The firm provides advice on assigning an enduring power of attorney, and our counsel will draft this document in consultation with the client.
When an individual has reached a state of incapacity and no power of attorney or guardian has been assigned, the firm represents family members in the application for committeeship.
