We have been providing and developing this type of service for over 16 years. In that time we have formed relationships with many registrars, revenue authorities, banks, estate agents and insurance brokers. These have enabled a more efficient delivery of services to legal firms and trust companies from around the globe.
Since inception we have assisted in the administration of Australian assets for over 700 estates and trusts.
The professionalism of the service has led to referrals being provided by several of Australia's leading Institutions.
