Family Law & Succession Planning

All families are different. Each family and the individual relationships within it come with a myriad of issues to navigate. This naturally changes over time.

Whether entering into new relationships, relationship breakdowns, the transition of wealth to the next generation, or a combination of all of these, the only constant is change.

When dealing with these issues, it is important to take a multidisciplinary and holistic approach. This ensures the various risks, opportunities and obligations are taken into account from all perspectives, creating solid and secure outcomes.

With more clients requiring assistance with complex needs and blended families, our extensive experience in both family law and succession planning ensures that you obtain the best advice from both perspectives. We also work closely with the broader, specialised resources in property law and commercial law.

The objective of the collaborative approach is to prevent disputes and encourage families to work cohesively in establishing structures, negotiate outcomes and communicate their ongoing decisions.

We have developed a talented and uniquely collaborative team to offer you tailored advice for all aspects of your family and private wealth.

Our clients, their lives, families and all the things that encompass are at the heart of what we do.

  • Property protection and division

  • Complex business, company and trust structures

  • Financial agreements (before, during and after a relationship)
