Trusts permeate almost all facets of Chambers’ work, whether it be traditional trust instructions involving the establishment and administration of trusts (often offshore), or the application of the general principles of trusts and equity in other commercial, company and/or insolvency contexts. As a leading set in each of these fields, Chambers is well placed to deal with trust disputes however and wherever they may arise.

Chambers covers all aspects of trusts law and related equitable principles, both in this jurisdiction and offshore, and whether in court proceedings or arbitration, including:

  • Breach of trust or other fiduciary duties, including civil fraud proceedings
  • Information requests by beneficiaries
  • Trusts (statutory or otherwise) arising in the context of corporate or personal insolvencies
  • Disputes involving or relating to security trustees or equivalent entities in bond issues and other financing structures.
  • Jurisdiction challenges, interim relief (including freezing and disclosure orders), asset-recovery and enforcement across all aspects of Chambers’ trusts work
  • Transactional advisory work
