It is for its estate planning service that APAC Insider has awarded ACL-Law within the Australian Enterprise Awards 2022. Estate planning is an integral part of an individuals’ ability to provide for the ones they love as well as to protect their wealth for future generations. Everyone over the age of 18 years, regardless of their family circumstances and net wealth, needs a detailed estate plan. Not having the appropriate estate planning in place can lead to unnecessary costs (both financial and emotional) and it can also increase profitability of family disputes over their estate upon their death. No one wants to see their hard-earned money/wealth end up in the hands of lawyers and the court system because of disputing families. Effective estate planning is not an isolated process; it involves crafting a complex web to ensure that all assets and hard-earned wealth are captured and end up in the hands of the client’s loved ones and those they want to benefit. ACL-Law can help individuals to decide how they want their wealth to be distributed with outstanding trust and reliability. Some clients have shared their feedback on their experience of dealing with the firm. Neal K said, “An absolute pleasure to work with Ambre; excellent service and follow-up to all matters.
