Leading Senior Lawyers

Estate & Planning, Trusts & Inheritance Disputes

Estate planning involves holistic approach and draws from trust law, succession, litigation, elder law and tax law to be effective.

With over 30 years experience with the benefit of being admitted as a solicitor/barrister in four countries, the Head of our practice area, Jaswinder (Jas) Sekhon, deals with estate planning, trust and succession planning. His clients include high net worth individuals and family groups in Australia and internationally.

For Leading Estate Lawyers

Estate planning in our view can involve considerations of elder abuse, mental capacity, considerations of how asset should be held and financed, complex aspects of various trusts and trustee powers, powers of attorney, life estates and family law considerations overlaid with taxation and succession issues.

Not only have we dealt with the above diverse areas of the law to bring them all together in wealth and asset transfer, but we have done so at times with individuals work residences in multiple countries and assets across multiple jurisdictions.

It is our view that the best estate planning practitioners have experience across multiple areas of law. These areas of law will impact your estate plan. Whether it be questions about trustee powers, capital gains tax or inheritance laws in other countries?

    Goldman’s dispute resolution/ litigation group has furnished legal advice and steerage throughout a hard and vicious court scenario. I discovered them to be experienced, responsive, knowledgeable, and honest. Jas is amazing on the overview and strategy. Ms Jen Cheal as the practice manager excels in knowledge, details and delivery; harnessing and enhancing the lawyers. Kim as client liaison is great to call when I need to speak with the legal eagles on weekends or nights when no one would answer my call! Thanks for the corny jokes Kim! (seriously). The senior team kept me informed and drove the litigation better than I expected and honestly, its no comparison to other firms I have used. I have used some very large and good firms (at 30% more cost +) but it always comes down to the people and their willingness. Not cheap here – but always reasonable and willing to review invoices and fees. Worth double with the drive and energy to win! Litigation is never a good thing and the last thing you need are jaded lawyers. Recommended and 5 star ! Thanks guys!
