Trusts in a commercial context
The team advises corporate trustees on their obligations under trusts established in a commercial context.
How can we help?
We advise on a wide range of technical issues including trustee investment powers, voting powers, the appointment of successor trustees, the construction and exercise of a range of fiduciary powers, the ongoing UK tax treatment of trusts established in a commercial context and the interpretation of trust instruments.
We also advise on the establishment and administration of bare trusts in a variety of situations, including escrow structures, receivables financing structures, trusts of assets ring-fenced to settle claims in restructuring transactions, trusts over premiums receivable which provide security to insurers and voting trusts.
