In a maturing society, estate and succession planning become increasingly important.
At Trident Law, we help organise the legal aspects of your wealth, investments, and assets through the preparation of a Will, inter-vivos gifts, and the creation of trusts on your assets.
It is not just about making a Will; it is about making a Will that best achieves your intentions in providing for your loved ones.
The magic is in the structuring of the Will by doing scenario planning so that your wishes are translated into directives that remain in place when you are no longer able to articulate your wishes. By leveraging on our experience in estate planning, we are dedicated to adding value by assessing risk areas that are relevant to your situation and personal needs and crafting bespoke solutions to cater to those needs. When there is a will, there is a way, and we will assist you in achieving the way you desire.
Lasting Power of Attorney / Appointment of Deputy
Life is full of uncertainties. No one can predict when they may lose their mental capacities and the ability to look after themselves.
It may be after a horrific accident, the side effect of a medical procedure, an untimely medical condition or simply due to old age. However, what you can do is to be prepared for such adversities, and we, at Trident Law, can assist you in making the necessary provisions to safeguard your interests.
By preparing a Lasting Power of Attorney (“LPA”), you nominate a person you trust to decide on your welfare and health, and to manage your property and affairs. If an LPA is not done, it will be necessary to apply to the Court for the Appointment of a Deputy, which will also serve the same purpose, but at a much higher (and needless) cost. In addition, there is always the tragic potential of such an application being contested by warring family members.
Probate and Non-Contentious Probate
We have significant experience in both contentious and non-contentious probate and letters of administration matters.
The death of a loved one is an arduous hurdle a family must overcome. The last thing a grieving family needs is to fret over the distribution of the assets of the bereaved. Here at Trident Law, we understand the pain such families go through, and offer practical solutions that assist the grieving family in obtaining the grant of probate or the letters of administration with the least amount of hassle.
Combining our experience and the belief that the court is not the best place for resolving sensitive probate disputes, Trident lawyers are able to advise you on your choices to achieve beneficial results.
Our dedicated team of private clients’ lawyers are well versed in assisting our clients to achieve the distribution of their assets in the manner they envision.
Working closely with financial institutions and trust organisations, our Trusts lawyers offer comprehensive succession structures that are customized for each client’s circumstances. Our collective experience gives us an edge in analysing the professional and personal goals of our clients and guiding them to a seamless transition of wealth between generations through testamentary dispositions.
