Tony Kelly

What is a succession plan

Having serviced the Middle Park area and its neighbouring suburbs for approximately 50 years, the team at Tony Kelly Lawyers are often asked this question. Essentially, a succession plan is a carefully considered future strategy for your lifetime that ensures the benefit and control of your assets passes to the right people at the right time. Succession plans can also go one step further, putting controls and restrictions in place to ensure that when control of your assets changes the assets continue to be managed in a way that is both beneficial and constructive in terms of the long term goal.

More than just a will

Many of our clients approach us to prepare a simple will, without having considered the long-term implications of their decisions. Whilst a will may seem like a quick and easy solution, a will is only one part of a broader estate and succession plan.

A solid estate and succession plan focuses on many other factors, which ensure that your assets are passed to those whom you wish to receive the benefit of them, in addition to effective management strategies as to how and when this will happen, either during your life time or after death.

With your family’s financial future at stake, it is important to ensure that you receive expert legal assistance with our succession plans and asset and wealth management strategies, providing bespoke solutions that are tailored to your personal or business structures, ensuring a seamless transition into the future.

Blended Families

Another factor that is often overlooked as part of succession planning is blended families. In Australia blended families are increasingly more common. A blended family is a family in which one or both partners have children from a previous relationship. You and your partner may also have children together, so that your children have half- and/or step siblings. Irrespective of the age of your family, it is crucial to take these relationships into account when drafting a Will and devising a succession plan. Leaving someone out could have dire consequences for your entire family. Bespoke strategies are absolutely critical when it comes to blended families, with planning for this type of family dynamic something that we have extensive experience in.
