Trusts can provide flexibility as to who receives financial or other benefits, when and how. They also offer the potential for protection from a number of risks such as imprudent heirs, forced heirship on death, fortune hunters, divorce and provide the reassurance of appropriate levels of confidentiality.
We have extensive experience in helping families and their advisers establish appropriate trust structures to assist with the management of wealth, as well as the creation and maintenance of family governance values.
Many of the entrepreneurs, landed estate owners and successful business people share the same desire to protect their wealth for themselves, their families and future generations. The use of trusts is a common arrangement to help address these and other issues.
If you would like to discuss a particular trust issue or the potential to use a trust in a particular circumstance, please contact Michael Heyworth or Jonathan Plimley.
