Three Stone has outstanding expertise in the field of trusts which we use extensively in both the private client and the commercial Chancery work that we undertake.

Members of chambers are frequently instructed in disputes relating to trusts, both domestically and in various offshore jurisdictions, including disputes about the existence and validity of trusts, the interpretation and rectification of trust instruments, claims relating to breaches of trust and the exercise of trustees’ powers, and applications under the Trust of Land and Appointments of Trustees Act 1996.

We also undertake a wide range of non-contentious work relating to trust such as advice on the setting up, operation and termination of trusts, the drafting of all necessary trust documentation, and court applications for the variation of trusts and the blessing of trustee decisions.

Some members of Three Stone have particular experience of charitable trusts and are often asked to advise in relation to the creation and operation of such trusts.

We also have significant experience of trust-related professional negligence claims.
