Agency & Consulting Work

Our firm operates from Western Australia and our staff are all resident in this jurisdiction. We are frequently asked by other law practices to:

Appear in contested matters in the Supreme Court of Western Australia.

Take on grants of administration or trusteeships in cases where:

  • None of the eligible applicants is resident in the State of Western Australia.
  • All eligible applicants live overseas.
  • The only people eligible to take a grant of representation have a disability preventing them from taking on the appointment.
  • One or more of the eligible applicants not have attained the age of majority.

Fixed & Deferred Fees

Most people can’t afford big legal bills. You shouldn’t be worried about money when a loved one dies. In most estates we manage, fees are taken entirely from the estate once the assets become available.

The other unique approach or firm takes towards billing is that it does not provide time charged services. We only provide fixed fee quotes which never change. This avoids cost blow outs and over servicing which regrettably does occur within the legal profession.

Instant Engagement

The purpose of the meeting is to assist families to navigate the minefield of bureaucracy. If nothing more, we hope to help families understand the processes of winding up an estate from start to finish so that they are at least off on the right track.

We can assist our clients to send identification, approve quotes and cost agreements all at the press of a button. Secondly, our firm has developed long standing relationships with other professionals including but not limited to accountants, realtors, valuers, auctioneers and conveyancers.

  • All eligible applicants live overseas.
  • The only people eligible to take a grant of representation have a disability preventing them from taking on the appointment.
  • One or more of the eligible applicants not have attained the age of majority.

By taking on these personal appointments the estate is not put to additional costs and complexity. In most cases we are able to avoid having to provide surety guarantees, administration bonds or trust deeds under s17A of the Administration Act 1903 (WA).

We are often asked by law firms to make applications to re-seal foreign grants of probate or letters of administration in the state of Western Australia.

If you would like assistance in dealing with the jurisdictional nuances of Western Australia please do not hesitate to contact our office for the purposes of conferral.
