Trust Disputes

Basically, trusts are a means of controlling the distribution of property. There are various forms of trusts including:

  • fixed;
  • unit;
  • discretionary;
  • testamentary;
  • charitable;
  • bare;
  • hybrid; and
  • superannuation.

Trusts are an integral part of many families and businesses and can be useful to:

  • minimise taxation;
  • share income;
  • reduce risks including from creditors; and
  • control assets and income.

Without proper guidance, disputes in respect of trusts can be a costly and stressful experience. Our team of experienced solicitors can help you institute proceedings to seek the orders you require in the event the matter can’t be resolved through negotiation and mediation.

We can also assist you with many complex issues that can arise in respect of trusts, including:

  • creation of a trust;
  • operational issues – including the appointment, removal, or remuneration of the trustee or trust of directors;
  • income division – including entitlement/ access to income, timing of entitlements, the splitting of income between family members/ business operators;
  • asset ownership and distributions; and
  • taxation issues.
