Probate and Estate Administration

At KCL Law, we know firsthand the time, effort, skill and technical expertise required to administer estates and to finalise the affairs of someone who has passed away.

We recognise that estates are becoming increasingly more complex, with many estates no longer comprising of simple structures, but are complicated with interests held either in unit trusts, SMSF’s, family trusts, businesses, shareholder or buy-sell agreements and with flow on effects that come with structures such as tax, duty and possible litigation.

We also understand the intricacies that come with blended family relations.

Our Estate Group has the compassion, specialised knowledge and experience to assist with any estate administration matter.

Our probate and estate administration services include:

  • probate applications;

  • estate administration;
  • complex and contested applications for probate or letters of administration; and
  • international estates.
