PRIVATE CLIENT MATTERS

There is a well-known adage of uncertain provenance that “life is what happens while you are making other plans”.

At Blackwells we are well equipped to help our clients through those major issues in life that need to be addressed from time to time. Some of the areas where we can assist are as follows:

 

WILLS

  • Advising clients of the best structures to both fulfil their moral and legal obligations and also to produce a document that reflects clearly their wishes


ENDURING POWERS OF ATTORNEY

  • Drafting and explaining enduring powers of attorney, both with regard to personal care and welfare and property
  • Advising attorneys


PROPERTY RELATIONSHIP AGREEMENTS

  • Preparing "contracting out" or "prenuptial" agreements to preserve assets in the event of a separation
  • Negotiating favourable property settlements on separation and preparing separation and relationship property agreements
  • Arranging legal representation in court, should negotiated settlements not be possible in regard to relationship property and trust issues


ESTATES

  • Obtaining probate or letters of administration
  • Assisting and advising executors and administrators generally in the administration of estates
