Trusts and Succession - UK and International
Trusts are an effective way of protecting your family and business assets and can provide flexible solutions for a wide range of wealth planning requirements.
Our specialist trust lawyers will work closely with you and provide a bespoke plan to meet your individual needs and requirements. We can help establish trusts to :-
- Efficiently pass assets on to future generations;
- Protect partners, spouses, and children from previous relationships;
- Provide protection for vulnerable loved ones;
- Help reduce inheritance tax payments.
Our team has experience in all aspects of trust law and taxation and can provide practical, tax-efficient advice on the creation, administration and winding up of trusts as well as providing advice to trustees regarding their powers and duties in relation to managing a trust.
We also act for beneficiaries of trusts, particularly those who require advice on their rights to information and protection of their interests.
International trusts & structures
If your family assets are located in various different countries, trusts and foundations may be a useful way to hold and protect your wealth.
Our experienced private wealth team can assist you with finding the right structure to hold your wealth. We take the time to listen to your needs and end goals before helping you determine which option will be more suitable to your individual requirements.
We consider how and where your wealth is held as well as the domicile and residence of the settlors, trustees, administrators and beneficiaries. This allows us to provide you with well-rounded advice in connection with preserving your wealth for both your family and future generations.
We will also continue working with you after setting up the trust or foundation to ensure that the structure continues to meet your requirements. If for any reason the existing structure no longer meets your needs or there are changes in legislation and tax regimes, we can advise on restructuring the trust or foundation to ensure that it continues to meet your needs.
