Although every working person has superannuation, the rules governing it are complex and can be difficult for many to understand. At Antunes Lawyers in Sydney, our expert lawyers are able to cut through the legal jargon and provide professional advice on establishing and managing a self-managed super fund that meets the legal requirements.

If a superfund member dies our lawyers provide advice regarding who is entitled to the superannuation funds. We can take steps to claim the superannuation or appeal a decision of a trustee if necessary.

When setting up a self-managed super fund off-the-shelf deeds contain provisions which often are not desired and can have adverse consequences. In many cases, your superannuation or trust fund is either your largest or second largest asset. Do not allow a one “size fits all” superannuation deed to govern what you can do and who gets it when you are gone. We draft our own superannuation deeds that not only comply with legislative requirements but also fit within your wishes and do not result in unintended consequences. Our deeds are simple and short, written in plain English and rarely need to be updated as they incorporate current legislation as well as future changes. Our deeds are also designed to fit in with your estate planning to ensure your estate is fully dealt with and your assets are protected.
