Estates & Trusts

Estates & Trusts law is the body of law that governs the disposal of property in the event of a person’s death or incapacity, the management of an individual’s affairs over time and the creation and management of trusts.

At Lawson Creamer we advise individuals, trust companies and charitable entities on estate planning and administration matters. Estate issues can often be contentious, and our firm can deliver advice based on experience in relation to wills and succession planning designed to meet your needs and protect your valuable assets.

Wills

For many years, our lawyers have assisted clients with ensuring that their final wishes are clear and enforceable. From reciprocal wills to complex estate planning, our lawyers can help with making your final wishes clear and enforceable.

Powers of Attorney

In addition to wills, our lawyers regularly prepare and assist clients with efforts to ensure that financial and health care matters can be dealt with appropriately in the event of incapacity. We would be pleased to discuss with you how we can effectively assist with your power of attorney needs.

Trusts

There are many types of trusts. Our lawyers have experience in preparing and providing advice in relation to the fiduciary duties and obligations of both trustees and beneficiaries.

Probate

For many years, we have represented clients involved in probate matters including beneficiaries under a will, wills that are in dispute, as well as administrators and executors who are working to fulfill a loved one’s final wishes.

Administrators

When necessary, our firm has acted as a court-appointed administrator for the estate of a deceased person in situations where there is no will. We can help in these situations and would be pleased to speak with you about our experience.
