For many years, we have focused on the legal areas in which we have particular expertise and experience, and do not try or want to be “all things to all people”. We are selective about the individuals, businesses and family groups that we work with, and believe that this enables us to develop stronger relationships with our clients over time.
About Estate Planning
Estate Planning is the process of planning for and documenting what happens to the ownership and control of assets and financial resources in the event of loss of capacity or death. A Will is usually a critical document, however Estate Planning can commonly involve several legal documents and related steps in order to be most likely to achieve a person’s wishes.
Our approach to Estate Planning has always been that the individual client’s family and the circumstances of the client are the critical issues to take into account. “One size fits all” is not a solution we apply. We think each client deserves an estate plan driven by their own circumstances.
WMM Law is one of Tasmania’s leading providers of Estate Planning services to private clients, with a team of specialist lawyers and support staff focused on this area.
A Will is usually a key Estate Planning document. WMM Law can ensure that you have an up to date and personalised Will, that fits with your overall Estate Plan. The Wills we prepare for clients are driven by what the client wants to achieve.
A Will must comply with the formalities of the Wills Act 2008 (Tasmania), if it is to be valid in Tasmania. The Willmaker must know and approve the contents of the Will, have testamentary capacity, and act freely in executing the Will. Our approach to Wills and Estate Planning is to take the time, and genuine effort that is required to get to know what matters for our client who is the Willmaker.
WMM Law offers a broad range of Commercial and Property Law services to our private and business clients. Our team of lawyers in this area focus on providing quality advice and documentation, and a high level of client service.
WMM Law has assisted many business people and commercial operations in Tasmania for over thirty years.
