The administration of a deceased estate can involve complex cross-jurisdictional, tax, commercial and trust related considerations.
Drawing upon our commercial expertise, we appreciate that it is important to have experienced and knowledgeable advisors who can assist executors and trustees navigate critical decision making processes.
Piper Alderman specialises in all aspects of estate administration, but particularly complex estates. We advise individual and institutional executors to help them understand their obligations, powers and duties in relation to the estate.
Our clients can expect efficient and prompt advice in complex situations, from identifying issues of the validity of wills, contentious and non-contentious probate applications right through to managing and identifying tax issues and commercial obligations to ensure the appropriate and timely finalisation of an estate.
