AREAS OF PRACTICE

Estate planning, tax planning, wills, superannuation and business planning – we can help

Because we have worked over the years on a range of policy and legislative changes, including drafting, Dwyer Lawyers, as Chartered Tax Advisers, bring to the practice of estate, superannuation, tax and business planning a range of experience and expertise which helps inform our advice.  Often, there is more than one way to achieve your ultimate family wealth planning objectives and it helps, in looking at alternative legal strategies, to take into account the trend of policy and legislation (which in turn may influence the way the Courts handle previous precedents).
