Specialist Legal Support Setting Up and Managing a Trust

Creating a new trust comes with an extensive checklist of decisions to make before proceeding with your declaration of trust that identifies all the conditions and terms.

For example, legal support is necessary to determine:

    • Who will act as your trustees
    • How your assets will be managed
    • Who will be a trust beneficiary
    • Which assets will be put into the trust
    • How your benefits will be distributed

Our specialist legal trust advisers can guide you through each of these decisions and assist in selecting the most advantageous arrangements for you and your beneficiaries.

Comprehensive legal knowledge is essential, with assistance around managing your trust and the related areas of estate planning, tax law and Wills.

Prompt Trust Management Legal Support

While it may be tempting to draft your own declaration of trust, we strongly advise seeking independent legal support.

Trust law can be very complex, and you must carefully construct your documents to ensure your assets are protected as you intend.

An expertly written trust declaration will ensure you achieve the required outcomes and your assets are well protected now and in the future.

Trusts can contain a vast range of assets, from financial stocks, shares, capital, life insurance policies, family homes, heirlooms, and investment residences. Therefore, it is essential to have diligent oversight of your trust and ensure any decisions you make are firmly grounded in bespoke legal guidance.
