We can assist with establishing and registering charitable organizations, foundations, and trusts; representing charities in estate administration and litigation; and advising charitable trustees and directors of their duties and roles.
Powers of Attorney
An individual may appoint an attorney for property or for personal care by executing a power of attorney document. The individual making the appointment is called the “grantor” and the person being appointed is called the “attorney.”
It is important that everyone has an estate plan. The plan should take into account the client’s personal and financial circumstances and objectives, and should be tailored to provide the best solutions and strategies to reflect the client’s needs and intentions.
