JM Shoot Attorneys, Johannesburg, can assist you with the establishment of a trust. There are many reasons why people opt to establish a trust, including the pursuance of more prudential risk management. We can advise you with regard to the advantages and disadvantages of trusts and can furnish you with accurate information pertaining to your risk management, tax and other implications should you choose to create a trust. Furthermore, we can advise you concerning the effective and reliable administration of your trust by your nominated trustees.

Should you need assistance with a testamentary trust, we can inform you of all the documents required by the Master of the High Court and aid you with the lodgement thereof, as well as overseeing any administration and distribution in accordance with the stipulations of such testamentary trust.


JM Shoot Attorneys can attend to the administration of deceased estates in cases where a deceased person has left property or a document, which is a will or is intended as a will. We can assist you with the administration and distribution of property in accordance with the deceased’s will, as well as proving the validity of such will, if necessary. We can also oversee the administration and distribution of the deceased's property in cases where the deceased died intestate.

We can furnish you with all information you will require for the reporting of an estate to the Master of the High Court, and can advise you of the documentation required in your particular matter.
