We advise on all aspects of trust law, including creating trusts, appointing new trustees and making payments from trusts. We have extensive experience advise trustees, beneficiaries and settlors (the people that create trusts).


Our approach

We pride ourselves on offering a personalised service and you will be allocated your own solicitor who will guide you through the process from start to finish. All of our solicitors are full members of STEP and are considered leading experts in this area of law.

When creating lifetime trusts, we work with a financial advisor to ensure that your financial plan will not be adversely affected by placing funds into trust. It also allows us to create a financial plan for the trust and manage future tax issues. By using our expertise, we keep it as straightforward for you as possible.

We can meet you at home, our office in Congleton, your office or any other location to suit you. We also offer meetings by online video (such as Zoom, Skype and Teams) or by telephone.


What is a trust?

In their simplest form, trusts are gifts with conditions attached. A trust can be set up by a Will or during a person’s lifetime. They can provide a very flexible way of wealth planning and can provide an element of protection for the beneficiaries. Common trusts in include asset protection trusts, life interest trusts, discretionary trusts and disabled persons trusts.


How our solicitors can help with trusts

Our solicitors are experienced in dealing with trusts and often act as professional trustees for trusts. We can advise on trusts within Wills as well as creating lifetime trusts. We also provide advice to trustees of existing trusts on winding up trusts. We are used to working with other professional advisors such as accountants and financial advisors particularly in relation to registering trusts.
