Advice for Trustees & Executors

We save you time and help you manage your risk by guiding you through the steps of administering estates and trusts, including

  • applying for probate or administration
  • interpreting wills and trust documents
  • securing assets
  • paying taxes and other liabilities
  • communicating with the beneficiaries

When a person dies without a will, a court order may be needed to appoint a person to administer the estate. We advise on who has priority to administer the estate and help you to apply for the authority you need.

Advice for Beneficiaries

We help you protect your rights and communicate your concerns to executors and trustees.


Probate is the process that confirms that a will is valid. A will can be proven in "common form", when there are no serious disputes about the validity of the will, or in "solemn form", when there are allegations that the the will-maker did not understand their will or the will was made involuntarily. We advise you on the best procedure for the particular estate and help you to apply for probate.
