Our specialist solicitors can help you protect and manage your assets both in life and in death.
Trusts are a means of managing wealth – financial investments, property or businesses – for you, your family or anyone else you would like to benefit.
When you create a trust the trustees become the legal owners of the relevant assets. Those relevant assets are then known as trust property.
We can help you set up a trust to:
- Pass on wealth safely and tax efficiently to the next generation.
- Fund education and wellbeing for children and grandchildren.
- Reduce inheritance tax.
- Protect assets from creditors and divorcing partners.
- Provide for vulnerable and loved ones.
- Protect personal injury compensation.
There are 3 stages to setting up a trust: (1) taking advice on the available options, (2) creating the trust and (3) administering the trust. We can assist with all 3 stages and our lawyers have unmatched experience with all aspects of trust law and taxation offering pragmatic advice and solutions.
