We represent professional trustees, private individuals and families, banks, financial institutions and charities from all over the world. International law firms and accountancy practices look to us for support on projects that require specialist advice on the laws and regulations of our jurisdictions. Our lawyers work across a range of structures including private, corporate, charitable, purpose and commercial trusts, foundations, family offices, partnerships and companies. We advise on settlor reserved power trusts, private trust company arrangements, pension and employee benefit schemes, wills and matters of inheritance, international estate planning, regulatory advice and trust-related disputes.
With a fully integrated practice, we also represent trustees, executors and beneficiaries in contentious matters such as breach of trust actions, estate disputes, and other administrative applications that need to be made to the courts. Our contentious trust lawyers have appeared in many significant offshore trust cases to come before the courts, including representing clients before the Privy Council in the UK.
