GSS serves as Personal Representative (PR) of Estates. The duty of the PR is to carry out the directives contained in the Last Will and Testament of the deceased. The main advantage of a corporate PR is to be assured that the named PR will be around when the time comes. Other benefits of using a professional fiduciary as a PR include avoiding family conflict, as well as expertise in accounting, financial and tax matters, and property management.
GSS is often appointed in probates in which a PR has been removed by the court for failure to perform their duties or otherwise fail to conduct themselves satisfactorily to the court.
