The sheer scale of the Channel Islands' trusts industry makes this a core area of our practice. We give trust companies practical assistance and seamless advice when difficulties arise in the administration of trusts under their control.
We are one of the largest dedicated trust advisory service in the Channel Islands. The litigation group works closely with senior and experienced practitioners in our international private client group to provide the best possible advice on each case.
Our long-standing client relationships are built on our assurance of small, partner-led teams, in which each client has ready access to their trusted adviser in either group.
Our approach is realistic and commercial. Where possible, we use our skills in negotiation and mediation to help clients achieve an out of court settlement. But some trust cases are contentious, and we have acted for major trust companies and banks in some of the biggest, most complex breach of trust actions to have come before the courts. We also vigorously pursue claims on behalf of beneficiaries and, where called for, restitution of trust funds.
