Estate Planning, Deceased Estates & Estate Disputes

At McLachlan Thorpe Partners we understand that effective estate planning is about more than just creating a valid Will. It is about working with our clients to understand their individual circumstances and giving them, and their families, peace of mind. We often work with successive generations of families as well as liaise with our clients’ accountants or financial planners in a holistic approach.

We advise our clients about, and draft, the documents they need to ensure that their wishes are effectively and efficiently carried out both during their lifetime and after they pass away.
