Estate Planning Insights

Profile of Australian Communities Foundation
Hosted by Australian Communities Foundation
13 September 2023

As part of our commitment to ongoing education for our giving community, we are delighted to invite you to a free workshop, Estate Planning Insights. This 2-hour session will provide practical guidance on up-to-date estate planning, appropriate for your age and stage of life.

It’s a topic often avoided, but getting your estate in shape sooner rather than later means peace of mind, knowing your loved ones will be taken care of and your wishes respected.

One of Australia’s leading experts in wills, estates, and succession planning, Emma Woolley, Chair of Partners and Head of Family Office Advisory at Hall & Wilcox, will provide insights, tips and examples as she guides us through the key opportunities and challenges in wills and estate planning.

You’ll learn about:

  • When and why to deal with estate planning
  • Family law and how it intersects with estate law
  • Issues of capacity – executors and powers of attorney
  • Estate disputes – how to avoid them and what to do when you can’t
  • Digital estate planning – what to be aware of with online assets and profiles
  • Superannuation and your estate
  • Gifts in wills.  

Light refreshments will be provided.

Spaces are limited, so please RSVP at your earliest convenience. We look forward to seeing you on September 13th.

Please note: This event will take place online via Zoom and in person at Hall & Wilcox, Level 11, Rialto South Tower, 525 Collins Street, Melbourne VIC 3000 at 1.30pm AEST for a 2pm start on 13 September.
