COVID-19 is impacting on every aspect of life.

However, time spent at home also allows you to turn your focus to tasks that may have been put off in your busy 'before COVID-19' schedules, including your estate planning.

Kells are here to assist and to ensure that your legal affairs are in order. We remain open for business and we encourage all our clients to use their time at home to ensure that you have in place an effective:

  1. Will – so that hard-earned assets are going to those intended
  2. Power of Attorney – so that you can control who will be looking after your money and assets if you are unable to
  3. Enduring Guardianship – so that you can control who will make the most important medical and lifestyle decisions for you if you are unable to.

During this time, initial appointments occur by telephone or video conferencing, which allows you to speak with our experienced estate planning lawyers regarding your estate plan from the comfort and convenience of your own home.

Once your documents have been prepared in accordance with your instructions, we can discuss options to arrange for execution (which given the ever changing environment caused by COVID-19, may change moving forward). We will work with you to ensure you are comfortable with the actions being undertaken and to ensure the health and safety of our clients and our team members.

We are committed to working with clients to tailor our delivery of service to achieve the best outcome during the COVID-19 pandemic.
