Nicholai Poulson and Nicole Ainger

Nicholai Poulson and Nicole Ainger lead the Wills & Estates Division of Ingwersen & Lansdown with Partner guidance from David Lansdown.   We know that when someone close to you passes away, it can be very distressing.   We are here to assist you with all the legal mine fields to ensure the transition is made as smooth as possible.   If you would like David, Nicholai and Nicole’s vast experience to assist you in preparing your Will and other legal documentation, please call them on (07) 5589 2600.

Before your appointment to see our team to have a legal will drafted, you may wish to consider the following issues:

  • The full names of your beneficiaries, executors and trustees;
  • What percentage of your estate each beneficiary is to receive;
  • The extent of your assets held jointly or solely, including details of a Family Business/Company operated by you;
  • Details of your Superannuation;
  • Utilisation of any trust structures set up, e.g. discretionary, unit, special disability trust.   We also recommend you bring in the Deed;
  • If you intend to exclude any potential member of your direct family you should be prepared to discuss this with us at your first meeting;
  • Should you consider the creation of a Testamentary Trust?   This legal tool may protect your estate from challenges by persons who may have an interest in your estate as creditor or otherwise.   A Testamentary Trust can also be an effective tax planning tool.   A Letter of Direction can assist your trustees to guide them with your thoughts and wishes after your death. For more information on Testamentary Trusts, contact our office.
