Friday 29th April 2022 from 9am

Wills & Estates Senior Associate Debbie Sage will join Robyn Hyland to talk about the importance of planning for end-of-life care and what options are available.
Lucy McPherson has worked exclusively in estate litigation since 2010.

Since starting her legal career in 2010, Lucy has worked exclusively in the area of estate litigation. Lucy is based on the border of New South Wales and Queensland and is competent working across all jurisdictions.

Lucy has a thorough understanding of the complex discrepancies between each state and territory’s Succession Laws, culminating in an ability to provide sound advice for those clients who have cross-jurisdictional issues.

Over the years she has also developed corresponding expertise in guardianship, financial management law and public trustee disputes.

With lawyers in the family, Lucy developed an innate sense of justice from a young age and was drawn to pursuing a career in law, where she felt she could do something purposeful in her day-to-day work and contribute to something bigger than herself. She is a natural strategist and problem solver who takes a practical approach to resolving issues.

Lucy has studied a Master of Applied Law (Wills & Estates) through the College of Law, achieving a mark of High Distinction across all subjects. She is continually learning and developing her skills as part of her commitment to maintain a high calibre of technical skills which in turn provides an excellent service for her clients.

She also regularly presents at legal continuing professional development (CPD) seminars for industry bodies including the Television Education Network and is a full member of the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP). STEP is the worldwide professional association for those advising families across generations, which promotes best practice, professional integrity and education to their members.

As a lawyer, she finds her work intellectually rewarding and recognises the unique position it puts her in to help others and further the public good. Her vast knowledge and steely determination instil confidence in clients who are aggrieved by a family member’s decisions upon their death.

Lucy can provide advice on:

  • the preparation and execution of family provision claims and defences, and other litigious estate matters in the Supreme Court of New South Wales, the District Court of Queensland and the Supreme Court of Queensland;
  • applications for Probate in solemn form;
  • applications for construction and rectification of Wills;
  • the rights and the role of executors/trustees and the appointment and removal of executors/trustees;
  • notional estate orders within New South Wales;
  • cross-border issues where complicated jurisdictional and choice of law questions arise;
  • contentious issues arising out of grants of Probate, estate administration and executor’s duties;
  • advice on powers of attorney disputes, public trustee disputes, guardianship and financial management matters.
