We are experts in all aspects of trusts and foundations including private family trusts, charitable trusts and non-charitable purpose trusts. We can help you with establishing trusts and foundations, whether it be drafting all the relevant documentation, finding organisations to run such structures or advising on suitable jurisdictions or countries from which to operate them. We also advise on reorganising such structures and in relation to disputes concerning trusts and foundations.
We act for trustees, council members, protectors, guardians and beneficiaries and also on behalf of other professionals who advise such people but do not have specific expertise in this area.
Often these trusts and foundations are established in small specialist financial centres. Examples being Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, Bermuda, Bahamas, Gibraltar, Liechtenstein, Malta, Luxembourg, Hong Kong, New Zealand. However of the trusts and foundations often hold valuable assets such as real estate, business interests and investment portfolios in other parts of the world.
We pride ourselves on being able to consider the interaction of the laws of different countries as they concern such structures and the assets which they hold.
