How Myerson Trust Dispute Solicitors Can Help
Myerson's specialist Trust dispute solicitors advise both trustees and beneficiaries on a range of Trust disputes, including the following situations:
- When a trustee commits a negligent or fraudulent breach of Trust.
- When a trustee disregards a breach of Trust by a co-trustee.
- When a trustee neglects their duty to administer the Trust deed efficiently.
- When the Trust deed (which outlines the terms of the Trust) is vague, unclear, or contains errors.
- When the person who established the Trust, referred to as the settlor, lacked the mental capacity to do so or was unduly influenced.
- When the settlor received inadequate legal or tax advice when creating the Trust.
- When the Trust documents do not accurately reflect the settlor's intentions.
- When the Trust prevents creditors or financial dependents from making claims on assets within an estate.
- When the Trust is used as a pretence to disguise the genuine legal ownership of assets.
Trust Dispute Claims
If you want to make a Trust dispute claim, you usually need to prove that you've lost money because of the trustee's breach.
We provide guidance to trustees, whether professional or lay, as well as beneficiaries, in various Trust and estate disputes which encompass:
- Disputes involving Trusts situated onshore.
- Disputes involving offshore Trusts.
- Legal actions aimed at the removal of trustees.
- Claims pertaining to the compilation of an inventory and account.
- Resolutions of disputes among trustees.
- Resolutions of disputes among beneficiaries.
- Claims made by or against Trusts.
- Inquiries concerning Trust assets.
- Alterations to the terms of Trusts.
Our Trust dispute lawyers understand the sensitive, confidential, and often family nature of these disputes, and we act accordingly to help resolve delicate situations.
