Estate Planning

Estate planning plays a crucial role in effectively preserving wealth and ensuring its smooth transfer to future generations. At Noctua Legal, we understand that a variety of legal, financial and strategic considerations must be taken into account to optimize our clients' estate planning. For this reason, we have developed a comprehensive service offering that includes:

Will Drafting
Preparing a will is an important step in life, as it expresses an individual's wishes regarding the distribution of his or her assets upon death. We recognize the importance of family legacy, and take the time to understand each client's unique needs, values and aspirations regarding the succession of his or her assets.

We draw up a complete balance sheet of assets and liabilities, assess the potential tax implications of transferring property to the next generation, and review existing wills. Our approach aims to harmonize the legal requirements of wills with our clients' personal wishes regarding the distribution of their assets.
Creation of Trusts
Creating a trust offers several tax advantages. We can set up trusts, including family trusts, testamentary trusts and asset protection trusts.
Power of Attorney and Mandate of Protection
A power of attorney enables an individual to appoint someone to take care of his or her property. A mandate of protection, on the other hand, not only designates an individual to ensure the protection of property, but also appoints a person to make decisions relating to the individual's well-being, such as decisions concerning housing or health care. Our notarial experts have the expertise to prepare powers of attorney and mandates of protection tailored to the needs of each client.
Other Strategies
At Noctua Legal, every estate plan is tailor-made. To minimize the tax impact on the estate and heirs, we explore all the strategies available to our clients, including estate freezes, gift programs and insurance products that can play a useful role in optimizing the plan.
