Trusts can provide flexible solutions for a very wide range of wealth planning, family or business needs.
Trusts may be established as stand-alone solutions or as part of a larger structure. Our comprehensive service includes drafting the trust deed, providing a corporate or individual trustee, establishing related corporate structures, maintaining trust accounts, arranging banking facilities and administration. Where necessary we liaise with specialist lawyers to ensure our drafting is bespoke and precise.
The private client team also establish and administer foundations in a number of jurisdictions. They are a robust vehicle for protecting and delivering assets for private, commercial and charitable wealth. Foundations offer flexibility and control over the administration of assets and are ideal for clients more familiar with civil than common law.
Our foundation services include planning and structuring the foundation, preparing the foundation charter, providing council members and where appropriate we can act as registered agent together with establishing bank accounts, administration and accounting.
