Wills are important and can often be simple and straightforward. However in complex situations a comprehensive Estate Plan is required. Murfett Legal has one of the most experienced teams in Western Australia advising clients on Wills and estate planning. Our combined expertise in simple and complex Wills, estate planning litigation, taxation, property and commercial law ensures a comprehensive approach. We are sought for our legal advice and tax strategies for estate planning, trust administration and wealth protection. We ensure the right instruments, documentation and structures are put in place to effectively transfer assets of deceased estates, minimising the taxes that beneficiaries will have to pay.
An estate plan goes much further than a Will. It deals with the distribution of assets and wishes of a client while also ensuring beneficiaries pay substantially less in taxes, fees and court costs. Every client is different and we tailor our advice while drawing on decades of expertise in estate planning and documenting what happens to the ownership and control of assets in the event of loss of capacity or death.
Clients seeking comprehensive Estate Planning will benefit from Murfett Legal’s experience and feel fully supported in making sound decisions with the right legal documents in place. Our approach is to understand our client’s desires, together with their life circumstance, investments and business interests to develop an Estate Plan that clearly reflects and facilitates their wishes.
Not everyone needs a comprehensive Estate Plan. However, it is vital to have an up to date and personalised Will. We advise that a Will is reviewed every three to five years. It will need to be updated after a change in circumstances such as a significant alteration in assets, marriage, separation, divorce, retirement, adoption, birth or death.
We take the time and effort to get to know what matters for our clients and offer a range of comprehensive wills and estate planning services including;

Although there is no national or state Will registration system currently in place, many specific legal requirements need to be followed for a Will to be valid. Unfortunately, for those trying to locate Wills, this can be a burden to track down.
Finding an estate planning specialist is essential when making your Will. A professional will be able to help you draft your Will so that upon your passing, your assets can be given to those you have chosen. They will also assist you in creating an estate plan to minimise the risk of it being contested in the case of complex circumstances.
