A message to our clients:

With the recent move to allow shops and offices to fully re-open, we will continue to review our policy on clients attending our offices. Currently, we are not inviting clients into the office but we are able to briefly meet with clients by appointment at the door of the office. Please note that face coverings are still required indoors until further notice. We remain committed to following the Government guidelines as rules continue to change in line with the easing of lockdown.

We continue to operate our business as usual across all the services that we offer our clients, both current and prospective.

We continue to offer teleconference-based or telephone consultations.. We are aware that not everyone has been offered full vaccination yet and understand that some people may feel safer continuing with socially distanced communications.

Our family and wills / probate solicitors continue to offer initial advice remotely by video conferencing and by telephone for up to one hour (as advertised on this website). Please call us if you would like to speak to one of our experts.

If you have a case in court, please telephone us so we can discuss representation.

We appreciate your patience, support and understanding over the past year since the restrictions related to the pandemic began. We hope you continue to stay safe, and wish you a brighter 2021!

Types of Trusts

An Express Trust allows you to set up a Trust with specific terms. This contrasts with a legally inferred from the dealings of the parties involved, known as a resulting or constructive trust depending on the specific circumstances.

Discretionary trust is one where you are able to prepare a Trust Document setting out the rules of the entitlements of the beneficiaries. This can mean they are variable and at the discretion of the Trustees appointed by yourself.

bare trust is a trust in which beneficiaries are immediately and absolutely entitled to both the capital and the income of the trust. The trustees have no discretion over the distribution of assets, and must adhere strictly to the instructions set out in the Trust document.

Charitable trust is where the beneficiaries you name in your Trust are a charity or for a charitable purpose and not an identifiable individual or individuals.

We are here to answer any Trust-related enquiries.
