Cambridge Estate Lawyer - We've all heard the old saying, "The only things that are certain are death and taxes." We are continually reminded of both problems by the every day news, and by institutions and businesses marketing their wealth-management services.
Our lawyers could advise our users on all aspects of wills and estate planning; the numerous aspects of personal and estate planning. Integrated in our services are preparations of wills, codicils, living wills, powers of attorney and guardianship matters. We work along with a diverse range of trust arrangements to accommodate clients' specific requirements.
Our wills and estates lawyers draw on our company's professionals on issues of family law, that usually play a significant role in personal planning. Services include the preparation of marriage contracts and cohabitation agreements. We act as counsel in issues of divorce and separation, property division, custody, and support. We understand that matters related to estate law and family law are amongst the most susceptible to litigation. Individuals and families are vulnerable and require personalized service with sensitivity to all the problems involved.
We act on behalf of clients in dependent relief and family law proceedings, will interpretation and contestation, variation of trust proceedings, passing of accounts, acting as litigation guardian for minors, and litigation trustees. Due to the nature of these areas, our objective is to help clients reach their objectives through mediation and several alternative kinds of dispute resolution instead of through litigation.
We are able to help families with our expertise in advanced tax planning to help them with their wealth planning, retirement planning, minimizing or avoiding of probate tax, and various taxation associated to death. Currently there is an unprecedented transference of wealth taking place, both on a corporate and individual level, from one generation to another. We offer services to help family businesses in matters of estate freezing, succession, other corporate reorganizations, shareholder and partnership agreements, as well as general compensation
For our clients, we also provide assistance for education savings plans, gifting programs, life insurance trusts, creditor-proofing mechanisms, immigration trusts, trusts or guardianships in concerns of disability, domestic and off-shore trust planning, and charitable giving planning.
When death happens, we could help with the administration of the estate for those representatives of the estate. We may be appointed either by the deceased through a will or court appointment so as to act as the directly nominated representative of the estate.
