Trusts & Fiduciary

With a growing emphasis on regulation and governance, both independent and bank-owned trust and fiduciary businesses continue to face a challenging and competitive environment. 

It is important to work with a law firm that can help you meet your objectives and overcome the challenges of the current regulatory landscape.

We work closely with trust and fiduciary businesses and their clients to build strong relationships based on trust, confidence and a deep understanding of their priorities and needs.

We have many years of experience in providing trusts, foundations and other fiduciary services using Guernsey, Jersey, BVI and Cayman law - jurisdictions which are collectively recognised as leaders in the provision of offshore fiduciary services.

Our strong global presence and unique network of offices allows us to offer non-contentious, semi-contentious and contentious support seamlessly across time zones and our integral 'one firm' attitude allows us to regularly work across different teams, departments and jurisdictions, meaning that every client benefits from the breadth of knowledge and experience of our experts around the world. 

We have an extensive range of experience in terms of particular products or service lines, including pensions and Shariah, and many of the team have worked in the other international off and onshore jurisdictions prominent in the world of wealth management. We have associated skills in dispute resolution, risk and regulatory, and image protection. We ensure that thought has been given to the composition of the team on every piece of work we do, and use our mix of skill and experience effectively.
