Smith Estate Trustee Ontario is a division of Ira Smith Trustee & Receiver Inc., an insolvency and financial restructuring practice for people and companies in the Greater Toronto Area. In our administering insolvent deceased estates, we saw first hand the sensitive nature of dealing with the assets of and the stakeholders in a deceased estate. We know of the unique needs of each beneficiary and stakeholder and their respective professional advisors.
We saw there was a need for an Estate Trustee, Executor/Executrix service that was much more than just the impersonal statutory walk-through offered by a large financial institution. We saw that not every person nominated to act as an estate trustee under a will has the desire or the skill set to handle the situation.
We have the skill set to solve the many complex problems in the administration of solvent deceased estates. We also have the compassion and experience to understand, relate to and empathize with the unique issues facing each stakeholder. We use our decades and generations of experience in acting as an Officer of the Court to bring parties together in a meaningful way.
