Queensland firm appoints new head of wills and estates

Queensland firm appoints new head of wills and estates

Senior associate Tom Rynders has been appointed to lead the new division of Queensland-based Creevey Russell wills and estates practice.

Joining Creevey and Russell Lawyers in 2008, Tom Rynders (pictured) is the firm’s longest serving non-partner practitioner.

In addition to his new position leading the wills and estates practice, he will continue to work for the firm’s compensation and litigation team. Mr Rynders is also an accredited personal injury specialist.

According to Mr Rynders, ensuring that a will is up to date will prevent disputes or complex legal claims arising following a person’s death. He said the firm often acted in instances where no will had been made or different family circumstances outdated a provision, making it fail.

"This can lead to disputes between beneficiaries and outcomes not anticipated by the testator or testatrix," Mr Rynders said.

He also urged people to consider how they wanted their estate to be distributed as the decision whether to appoint an executor or establish a trust could time out and avoid later complication.

"We often see Enduring Powers of Attorney that fail to appoint attorneys because the attorneys’ circumstances change."

Creevey Russell is a "full service" law firm with offices in Brisbane, Toowoomba and Roma. It services regional parts of the state as well as Western Queensland.
