Enduring Powers of Attorney
Should you reach an age where you are no longer able to make decisions, have you considered who should make them on your behalf? In some circumstances, we recommend setting up an Enduring Power of Attorney at the same time as you revise your Will.
There are two types of Enduring Powers of Attorney - one relating to your personal care and welfare, and one relating to your property. You can choose different people for each type of Power of Attorney.
To find out more, please ask your lawyer at the time you are considering your new will.
One of the few certainties in life is change. Although change can be exciting, it can also create significant financial risks for you and your family. Establishing a family trust can help to protect you and your loved ones from these financial risks.
As individual circumstances differ we can ensure the trust arrangements you put in place are tailored to meet the needs and aspirations of you and your family. We can also review any existing trust arrangements to see that they still meet your needs and those of your family.
