Estate Administration and Litigation

Administering an Estate can be a stressful experience, particularly during a time of grief. We aim to take the stress out of the process.

We can help you:

  • Locate and value assets and liabilities;
  • Deal with financial institutions, including Centrelink;
  • Prepare the necessary paperwork for a Grant of Probate;
  • Arrange for the transfer or sale of assets, including conveyancing for the sale of real estate;
  • Arrange for preparation of tax returns for the Estate;
  • Assist you with winding up trusts and companies;
  • Advice about the distribution of superannuation assets;
  • Preparing Estate accounts for distribution to beneficiaries;
  • Beneficiary interests and infant interests.

Our Principal, Pippa Sampson, also acts as an Executor in complex Estates, and has extensive experience in the area of Estate Administration.

Litigation in this area is often personal at a very emotional time.  Our team are involved in helping many clients challenging a Will on the grounds of:

  • Testamentary incapacity of the Will-maker;
  • Interpretation of a Will;
  • Where no provision or inadequate provision has been made for a beneficiary;
  • Where a person has been excluded from a Will.

For more information please contact Pippa Sampson or Adriane Whiticker.
