The number of disputes involving trusts has risen significantly in recent years. Many disputes take place in the international environment and cross-border jurisdictional issues may arise. These disputes often involve large sums of money, impacting significantly on family relations. The handling of such disputes requires specialist skills and knowledge, including an understanding of how and why private trusts are established and administered and the problems that can arise; an awareness of the cross-jurisdictional issues that may be relevant; and the ability to identify practical legal solutions to the dispute that are compliant with trust principles. 

International Trust Disputes provides a comprehensive and thorough treatment of this topic. Acting as a specialist guide for practitioners, it offers a survey of the special considerations that may arise with regard to trust disputes as well as a definitive guide to the issues which may be encountered in the jurisdictions where disputes are most likely to take place. 


Primary: Solicitors, barristers, and judges working in the area of trust law (both in the UK and internationally and both in private practice and in-house at trust companies, banks and accountancy firms). Trust managers, advisers and senior personnel in international trust companies, banks, and accountancy firms. Members of ACTAPS (Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists). 

Secondary: Students undertaking courses in trust law, particularly at the post-graduate and professional level (such as the STEP Foundation and Diploma in International Trust Management); academics. 

"This important book enhances one's understanding of international trust disputes.
