Commercial lawyers. Commercial results.

Areas of Practice

Our areas of practice reflect our experience and expertise.

Whether you are buying or selling a business or establishing or changing the structure of one, we have the capabilities to help you implement your business transactions.

Our approach to business advice is simple. By establishing what you want to achieve, we can tailor our advice to best suit your aims within your budgetary constraints.

We always aim to deliver cost-effective commercially sensible advice.

We understand the fundamental and substantive issues that impact on rural businesses operating in a globally competitive environment.

We can meet your agri-business legal needs from rural property sales and acquisitions to leasing and sharefarming agreements.

We can help you purchase or sell your home, investment property, commercial premises or farm. We can also assist in leasing or letting commercial premises.

At Saggers Law we can assist you with your estate planning needs.

In estate planning we review your business entities to see where and how your assets are held. They can be in trusts, companies and superannuation funds which are not assets of your estate. We then prepare wills containing testamentary trusts which deal with all your assets including those mentioned above.

These trusts help your beneficiaries to:

  • Pay much less tax
  • Keep your assets in your family i.e. your bloodlines. When your children die, your assets do not pass to the in-laws but to your grandchildren
  • Avoid losing your estate assets in divorce settlements or bankruptcy
  • Assist your children, grandchildren etc to retain your estate assets even though they may suffer drug, alcohol, gambling or other addictions
  • Prevent your spouse’s second wife/husband from taking assets meant for your children

These trusts can continue for 80 years after your death.

In addition to drafting Wills, we also assist executors to obtain probate or letters of administration from the Supreme Court.

We make sure that the process of obtaining probate is as seamless as possible so that the estate can be administered with a minimum of fuss as quickly as possible; all the while recognising the personal stresses that executors and their families go through at that time.

If we have implemented an estate plan for you during your life, we can better advise your executors how to establish and manage the various testamentary trusts created by your Will.

You might feel that you are entitled to share in another person’s estate or have been unfairly treated as a beneficiary. If so, we can advise you in relation to any rights you may have.

We are available to attend mentions, callovers, directions hearings and return of subpoenas in the Local, District and Supreme Court at Wagga.

We are also available to attend, inspect, and copy documents in local registries.
