Formation and Administration of Trusts
Trusts can be set up for a number of reasons and are a way of looking after assets for people. They are a legal arrangement where one or more 'trustees' are made legally responsible for holding assets in trust for the benefit of one or more 'beneficiaries'. The trustees are responsible for managing the trust and carrying out the wishes of the person who has put the assets into trust, usually written in their will or set out in a legal document called 'the trust deed.'
We work with all our clients, both new and existing, to achieve practical and value for money solutions to legal issues, please contact us and we will be happy to offer help and advice.
