About Nadia Bechai
Nadia’s practice is dedicated to Wills, Trusts and Estates law. She assists clients by preparing personalized, comprehensive and practical Wills, Powers of Attorney for Property and Powers of Attorney for Personal Care. She also advises Executors in the administration of estates.
Nadia is known for her structured and efficient approach to estate planning which supports her overriding objective: provide her clients with peace of mind. Personable, compassionate and authentic, Nadia also believes that preparing a Will is about more than setting out a distribution of assets; it is also an opportunity to communicate values and a way for clients to intentionally support causes that are important to them. Nadia therefore takes the time to understand her clients’ wishes to effectively reflect and communicate them in their estate plan.
Nadia regularly works with clients in different stages of life, from those who are early in their careers, to those who are in retirement. Her clients span family units of various forms including people who are single, in common law relationships, married, separated or divorced. Nadia also works with families who are planning for a loved one with a disability.
Nadia is uniquely well-positioned to support owners of privately held businesses in developing their succession plans. Prior to establishing Bechai Law, Nadia practised corporate law at a leading boutique firm where she advised privately held companies on their corporate structures and other commercial-related matters. This involved negotiating and drafting contracts that include Shareholders’ and Partnership Agreements which now allows Nadia to support business owners in establishing their estate plan.
Nadia is an affiliate member of the Society of Trusts, & Estates Practitioners (STEP), the Estate Planning Council of Canada, the Canadian Bar Association, and the Ontario Bar Association’s Wills, Trusts and Estates Section.
Nadia’s clients span across many ages and stages of life. All seek thoughtful and practical guidance in estate planning.
