Private Client Services

Private client services are legal services tailored specifically to the needs of private individuals. These services are as individual as the people they are designed for and can range across many distinct areas of law.

At Canaan Lawyers, we understand that sometimes clients need to negotiate sensitive issues in order to achieve the outcomes they want. We deliver discreet, practical and cost effective private client services by drawing on relevant expertise from across our firm in areas such as succession planning, asset protection, property law and commercial law. We are comfortable working collaboratively with clients’ financial, accounting and other professional advisors using a holistic multi-disciplinary approach to achieve practical, balanced solutions for our clients.

We aim to provide clients with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that their personal legal affairs have been appropriately managed and structured, allowing them to concentrate on the other more rewarding aspects of their lives.

  • Asset protection
  • Establishment of family and unit trusts
  • Charitable trusts (philanthropic trusts meeting the legal requirements set by the Australian Taxation Office)
  • Business succession planning
  • Powers of attorney
  • Will
