The Practice has been instrumental in developing and implementing bespoke Constitutions, Shareholder Agreements, Partnership Agreements, Memorandums of Wishes and Wills.

We start with a meeting with you to spend the time to establish your long term goals and objectives. We believe that this time spent by us is critical to understanding your goals and aspirations. We consider the entire family so that the wealth is protected and that losses occurring from litigation involving Family Law and other legal issues are minimised.

We seek to implement your wishes both in the short and long term. We aim to keep family wealth intact through generations or set up structures that distribute that wealth on death of the founders with minimum tax consequences to the family and other beneficiaries.

Our goal is to assist you, your business and your family to create wealth in the long term and preserve it for generations or set it up to maximise the after tax consideration on the ultimate sale.

The Practice works throughout the year with you to plan and manage tax situations as they occur.
