Estate Planning & Administration
There are few things more important for one’s piece of mind than knowing your dependents will be cared for and your property properly passed on after you are gone. At Perley-Robertson, Hill & McDougall, our clients depend on us for sound advice in what can be a difficult and emotional process. Proper estate planning eliminates uncertainty in how an estate will be managed and passed on. Along with sound estate administration, proper planning can help to maximize the value of the estate by minimizing taxes and other expenses.
Working closely with our lawyers in tax and other practice areas, we provide our clients with a full range of estate services – including wills, powers of attorney, trusts, business succession planning, charitable giving, and end of life or funeral planning. We advise and assist our litigation lawyers on estate and trust-related disputes, including the interpretation of wills and trust instruments. We are also experienced in the establishment, registration and operation of trusts, charitable organizations and foundations.
