Kate Moss B.Sc. LL.B., TEP, Notary Public, is a senior probate lawyer at Director level in charge of our probate practice area. Kate specialises in trusts and estates, tax and superannuation law, with a particular focus on complex and contentious post death matters.
Kate is one of the most experienced probate lawyers in Tasmania, assisting Executors to administer probate matters for both regular and high net worth estates, including estates with international connections.
In matters that are contentious, Kate’s skill and knowledge enables her to identify relevant practical and legal aspects of the administration of the estate to be taken into account during negotiations (including for example, duty and taxation considerations that may arise as a consequence of agreements between the parties). This ensures that there is a comprehensive resolution of the disputed matters at the earliest possible stage, ultimately allowing the Executors to complete the administration of the estate efficiently and effectively, for the benefit of the beneficiaries.
Kate is a graduate of the University of Tasmania, and holds a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice. Kate has also completed further studies with the Taxation Institute of Australia.
