    What is estate planning?  

    Estate planning goes beyond just drafting a Will—it’s about proactively preparing for your future well-being and that of your loved ones. It involves not only making plans for the gifts you’d like to leave on your death but also ensuring that your most trusted family members or friends are empowered to make financial and medical decisions on your behalf when needed.  

    If you have interests in companies, trusts, or superannuation, the succession arrangements regarding those interests are also reviewed to ensure the right people are in control and will benefit as you intend. A well-drafted estate plan will encompass all these matters while also taking into account the risks of any claims, potential disputes within the family, and the taxation consequences of the various arrangements. 

    Who we are  

    McManus & Co Lawyers, founded by Beate McManus in 1975, and now led by her daughter Gabrielle McManus along with a team of skilled and compassionate lawyers and legal executives, have been serving the community for almost 50 years. We provide essential guidance on estate planning and administration. Our team invests heavily in continuous learning to ensure that we provide the best and most up-to-date estate planning assistance to our clients. 

    Forward-thinking approach 

    As our assistance extends to challenging wills and administering estates, we understand what makes a good estate plan (and a bad one) and apply our extensive experience right from the get-go to ensure your interests are protected. 

    Collaborative and holistic care  

    While for many, estate planning can be a simple affair, those with more complex assets, families, or finances will often benefit from having the assistance of their financial advisor and/or accountant involved to ensure their plan meets their asset protection and tax objectives. We work closely with your advisors to ensure that your estate plan achieves this and can refer you to trusted professionals if necessary. 

    Transparent fixed fees  

    We understand the importance of transparent pricing for peace of mind. All our estate planning fees are listed online, ensuring our clients know exactly what it will cost from the beginning. 

    We’re here to assist you. Feel free to reach out with any inquiries or concerns about estate planning or administration.
