There are tens of thousands of Jersey law trusts in existence owning valuable assets sometimes through complex networks of holding companies. Inevitably disagreements arise. Beneficiaries can feel their trustees hold all the cards. Trustees can regret that the settlor did not foresee how complex the beneficiaries’ lives would become. We advise trustees and beneficiaries who are dragged into matrimonial proceedings, who confront hostile third parties or who are simply confronted by a momentous decision. Where court applications are needed we have the experience to present the position to our client’s best advantage while managing carefully the risk/reward calculations court proceedings invariably require.
