Estate Planning Solictors

Whether the circumstances involve assets owned in various parts of the world or foreign people living in or moving to the UK, without proactive and strategic planning there is a risk of assets passing in an unintended way or valuable opportunities being missed.

Why might a trust be of benefit?
A trust is a relationship in which one or more people (the trustees) holds and manages assets for the benefit of one or more other people (the beneficiaries). There are many reasons and many circumstances where a trust might be of benefit.
