Trusts

The law of trusts is complicated and ever-evolving. Trusts are generally understood to be a financial planning mechanism, often utilized to maximize tax benefits, and frequently used for estate planning purposes.

However, trusts also arise in many other circumstances, such as where a contract has been frustrated, or where one person or entity has taken unfair advantage of the vulnerability of another. Issues also arise as to the management of trust assets, and the duties that a trustee owes to a beneficiary.

At McEwan Partners, our lawyers have a thorough understanding of the law of trusts coupled with a practical understanding of how to make the law work in our clients’ favour.

The law of trusts, and of equitable remedies, is challenging. At McEwan Partners, we embrace these challenges, and these complexities, confident that we have the experience and judgement to guide and advise our clients.
