Trust disputes can arise for a variety of reasons and can have serious consequences for the trust and its beneficiaries. Negligent or fraudulent trustees can do long-term or even permanent harm to a trust and its assets.
The commercial orientation of our dispute resolution team allows us to deal with any trust dispute, irrespective of its complexity or value. Whether you are a trustee or a beneficiary seeking advice on a trust dispute, our dispute resolution team is able to assist. We advise, inter alia, on breach of trust and removal applications, claims regarding the validity of trusts, for example involving allegations of sham, mistake or lack of capacity, disputes about trustee powers and duties, creditor claims and enforcement against trust assets as well as fraud and asset tracing corporate vehicles within trusts.
