Agreements form part of doing business. Businesses enter into partnerships on projects, commission construction projects, employ workers, and often buy or sell properties. Therefore, they require employment contracts, sale of deed agreements, and more. Wording of these agreements must be done properly, to ensure legal enforceability. In addition, the contracts must meet the requirements, as stipulated by contract law, the CPA, and other relevant laws of the country. As part of our attorney services, we draft, update, review, and dispute contracts on behalf of client companies.
We draft a variety of contracts, including employment contracts, credit agreements, ante nuptial contracts, sale of assets, sale of business, and cession agreements, to name only a few.
Estate Planning, Wills, and Trusts
We help clients to set up, change, or update their wills. We also manage estate planning, and draft and manage trusts. Our attorneys understand the importance of correct wording in wills, and know how vital it is to ensure that our clients’ wills meet all legal requirements. Therefore, as part of our attorney services, we sit down with clients to help them draft wills that reflect their wishes regarding their assets. We also provide valuable guidance, to prevent clients from making mistakes regarding legal aspects, associated with wills.
Estate planning is also essential, in order to ensure that the cost of estate administration can be covered after the client’s death. As part of our attorney services, we help clients plan for expenses, such as estate duty, tax, the executor’s fee, and capital gains tax.
We help clients plan and structure their trusts, to protect their assets. We advise them on the best way to structure the trusts, manage them, and keep costs to a minimum. We also provide trust drafting services.
