Greg leads HopgoodGanim’s estate planning and administration practice. Greg has practiced in business succession planning and estate planning, administration and litigation for over 25 years, and exclusively since 2000. His practice includes drafting Wills and memoranda of directions, from the most simple to the very complex; drafting powers of attorney and estate plans; and in the unfortunate incidence of an estate dispute, advising on the most effective dispute resolution strategy.
Greg is a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, and has written and presented numerous papers at seminars for professional associations (including the Queensland Law Society), jointly with clients and business partners, and in-house.
Greg has an in-depth knowledge of the provisions of the Queensland Powers of Attorney Act 1998, the advantages and disadvantages of both a general power of attorney and an enduring power of attorney, the obligations and duties of attorneys, and an understanding of the role that both of those powers of attorney have to play, particularly for companies who have the same single director and shareholder. He also has a comprehensive understanding of Elder Law and issues related to accommodation, property, estate planning, Wills, and superannuation and pension arrangements for elderly clients.
Greg holds qualifications in Law (Honours) and Commerce.
