Wills, Estates, Trusts and Charities Law

The expertise and depth of knowledge of the Harrison Pensa Wills, Estates, Trusts and Charities Law Group have made us a leader in this area of law. We are trusted advisors for individuals, generations of families and many local, national and international not-for-profit organizations.

We work closely with our estate planning clients and their financial advisors to prepare comprehensive estate plans that may include Wills, trusts, estate freezes and business succession plans, and powers of attorney.  We understand that every individual, business and family situation is unique and deserves a customized plan that reflects the client’s objectives and values.

We assist estate trustees (executors) with estate and trust administration, including the preparation and passing of accounts.

We have a broad range of expertise in estate litigation. We represent the client in an estate dispute, the estate trustee who seeks direction from the court, the applicant for guardianship orders of an incapable person, and the dependant who seeks support from an estate.

We represent private and public charities and not-for-profit organizations assisting them with incorporation and on-going operation, from obtaining charitable registration status to governance, fund-raising, donations and planning issues.
