Resolving disputes over Trusts

Trusts are used to hold assets for the benefit of others, known as beneficiaries, and are a tax efficient way of managing assets after your death. Trusts are managed by trustees for the beneficiaries, according to the terms of a Will or Trust deed.

However, even when Trust deeds have been well prepared, they can lead to disputes after someone’s death. The disputes may arise between trustees, or between trustees and beneficiaries over issues such as the management of assets.
