At Arthur Browne & Associates we are experienced in preparing and providing advice in relation to all estate planning matters including:
A last will and testament is essential to ensure your assets are distributed according to your wishes and it also enables the administration of your estate to proceed quickly and cost effectively. Thoughtful and proper planning of your estate now can minimise the risk of family stress after you pass. We will help you prepare a will to meet your specific needs and update it when changes occur.
Enduring power of attorney
While your will operates on your death, an enduring power of attorney is important to protect your financial, personal and health interests during your lifetime. An enduring power of attorney can be drafted to commence immediately or upon loss of capacity. We can also help your attorney to understand their obligations.
Advance health directive
An advance health directive states your wishes or directions regarding your future health care for various medical conditions. Advance health directives ensure that those around you respect your wishes should something happen to you.
Corporate power of attorney
A corporate power of attorney can be prepared to detail who will control your company upon loss of capacity. The company’s directors appoint a person/s to act as the company's attorney. That attorney will then have the power to do the things that the power of attorney authorises them to do for example executing documents and making company decisions.
