Wills, Trusts & Estates

Boughton Law’s Wills, Trusts and Estates Practice Group has a wide range of experience in estate planning and transfer of wealth, during life, upon death, and even after death.

Areas of Expertise

Estate plans are the key to carrying out your personal objectives for the administration and succession of your wealth. Business owners in particular benefit from effective estate planning strategies that consider asset ownership, protection and distribution, both during life and upon death.

To help you achieve your goals, our lawyers provide legal advice on a variety of legal structures such as trusts, wills, joint ownership, life insurance arrangements, inter-vivos gifts and alter-ego trusts. We are also frequently retained by trustees, executors and administrators to obtain probate of wills or advise on the administration of trusts.

There are certain circumstances where individuals and families need particular support to ensure their continued financial wellbeing. Whether you have a family member with a disability or special needs, or you want to plan for your own mental or legal incapacity, we are proud to be your trusted legal advisor.

Where matters are contested, you can rely on our litigation lawyers to resolve disputes, and where necessary, to represent you in court proceedings.
