Strategic Toronto Estate Planning Lawyers



For most people, minimizing financial risk and protecting their wealth becomes critical when they begin to plan for their future. Effective wealth management requires careful planning, especially if you want assets to remain within your family. The best way to guarantee this is to engage in proactive estate planning with the assistance of an experienced estate lawyer.

Effective estate planning involves far more than just preparing a will or a power of attorney. While those documents are an integral part of planning for the future, you must also think about your immediate and long-term objectives, the needs of your children and/or loved ones, and how you may want to provide for them going forward, if at all.

Common Issues Arising in Estate Planning

Common questions and concerns that tend to arise include:

  • How can I protect my children or other beneficiaries from taxes after my death?
  • What are the potential implications of a separation or divorce on my assets?
  • I am getting re-married, what financial risks might I be exposed to and how can I minimize them?
  • How can I protect my children’s inheritance if they separate or divorce their partner?
  • How do I most effectively address assets such as a cottage?
  • How can I protect any property and assets that I hold outside of Canada, and what effect will this have on my beneficiaries?

At Arbesman Hamilton LLP our experienced estate lawyers help clients obtain clear answers to these and many other pressing questions, and provide practical, strategic guidance on all estate planning and trusts matters.
