Trusts

Although trusts can be difficult to understand, they can be very advantageous to almost everyone. They can provide for a beneficiary in future, protect assets or save tax.

Our specialist trust solicitors have years of experience in creating trusts and will explain to you how trusts work and the implications they might have for you. We will take the time to understand your objectives in setting up a trust and will advise you on the most suitable type of trust for your needs.

Our solicitors can also act as trustees and can continue to be involved as the trustee’s legal advisers. We have years of experience in working with trusts. We add value by streamlining the trust administration and advising on tax efficient ways to manage the trust fund.

Most assets can be placed in a trust, including property, shares, corporate bonds, cash and personal chattels. We can advise you on which assets to put in a trust and on investment strategies for the trust.

If you are considering setting up a trust or would like advice on an existing trust, contact us today to speak to a specialist.
