Our barristers have significant expertise in the law and practice concerning wills, probate, testator’s family maintenance and the administration of estates. They advise individuals, trustee companies, accountants and financial advisors.
Cases concerning wills and estates often require additional expertise in fields such as trusts, real property, company, insolvency, and tax law. Our members have expertise in these complementary fields, and can advise comprehensively on and conduct cases which cross boundaries between subject areas. Particular areas of expertise include:
- Contentious Estates
- Commercial Property
- Estate Administration
- Wills & Estates
Our barristers are attuned to the desirability of exploring consensual means of dispute resolution in appropriate cases. Members of Level Twenty Chambers act in negotiations and mediations to resolve disputes between those interested in a deceased person’s estate. A number of our practitioners in this field are themselves accredited mediators.
Members have appeared in a number of leading cases in the area of trusts and succession law and related areas concerning equitable rights of action. As such, the 2020 Doyle’s Guide to Leading Queensland Wills & Estates Litigation Senior Counsel listed counsel from Level Twenty Seven Chambers.
