Working closely with our highly-respected Inheritance, Wills Probate & Estate team, Guildhall Chambers’ Trusts specialists have a wide knowledge of trusts, including both the modern evolution of trusts relating to cohabitation and estoppel and more traditional trusts.

Trusts vary widely and give rise to a diverse range of problems. Our Trusts & Estates barristers have the depth of experience to assist with more novel and unusual problems as well as the more typical difficulties to which trusts can give rise. We are able to offer the same level of enviable expertise at all levels of seniority – both Silk and Junior – as well as both contentious and non-contentious Trusts & Estates work. This expertise extends across domestic locations and those involving overseas and multiple jurisdictions.

With a longstanding reputation for excellence in the field of Trusts & Estates our clients range from banks and financial institutions through to accountants, financial planners, solicitors and individuals.
