How can we help resolve trust disputes?
- Addressing concerns over the administration of trusts
We can analyse how the assets of the estate are being managed on behalf of the beneficiaries. We can also review how funds are being spent and advise on issues relating to distribution to beneficiaries of a discretionary trust.

We will work hard to ensure that you are able to receive what is rightfully yours and recover any losses caused by the actions of trustees.
- Removal of trustees
In cases of serious misconduct, we can assist with applications to remove trustees, in order to help protect your entitlement as a beneficiary or to help you manage funds appropriately as a trustee.
