Wills, Estate Planning and Probate
Goodwins’ Wills, Estate Planning and Probate Practice consists of law practitioners who have significant experience in these areas.
Since its inception, Goodwins has promoted the position that every responsible individual should draw up his or her own will. Goodwins has produced in Plain English a “Guide to writing a Will”. It is available in printed form and can also be downloaded from our website. It is a popular guide used by Financial Advisers in conveying the importance of wills to their clients.
With their experience, our lawyers are able to respond to the needs of clients, advising them in the planning of estates and the use of trusts, if applicable.
Our lawyers also advise high networth individuals on tax planning, asset preservation, provision for minors and disabled dependants while working closely with Financial Advisers and other professionals. Our lawyers also assist in probate and administration matters including making submissions and representations to the Estate Duty Department.
Goodwins has provided and will continue to provide training seminars on wills, trusts and their use in estate planning.
