WLL have a team who can help resolve Family Trust Disputes no matter the issue. Whether you are facing a claim for negligence, trying to properly administer a trust, a beneficiary with a dispute or you are in disagreement with another beneficiary, we can help.
Free Initial Discussion
Trusts can often seem confusing and many individuals have disputes concerning the administration or running of a trust.
Family trusts are often complex, and our aim is always to protect your wealth and trust.
It may be that the trust document is disputed, or there are potential errors and interpretations. The dispute could also be with regards to how the trustees are exercising their duties and there may be a breach of trust involved.
We have a wide range of expertise in dealing with trust disputes and we’ll guide you through the issues that may arise in solving the dispute.
We advise both individuals and trustees on a wide range of issues, including:
- Administration of trust disputes
- Disputes between trustees
- Disputes between beneficiaries
- Disputes over trust assets
- Claims by or against a trustee
- Removing trustees
Trustees have a duty to ensure they act in the best interests of the beneficiaries, which means not putting the assets of the trust at risk. Therefore, it is advisable to seek urgent advice.
Why Choose Us?
We exclusively work on resolving all disputes before going to court. This is also cost effective for our clients and helps speeds up a resolution.
