Wills, Probate & Succession

Managing wealth, asset preservation, planning for succession and inheritance, and writing wills can be a complex and difficult experience. It's important to ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes and your family and successor's lifestyles are maintained.

Alternatively, there may be other ways that you wish to dispose of your estate, for charitable and philanthropic reasons or to look after those who are unable to care for themselves.

Whatever you choose, it is important to seek the right advice to ensure your wishes are preserved. At Collas Crill we have experts in a number of jurisdictions to assist with wills, succession planning, inheritance matters and probate.
