Trust Disputes

Whether commercial in focus or inheritance-related, trust disputes are generally the result of either a wilful or a negligent failure of a trust’s administrators in their duties. Morgan Rose provide swift and focused advice to help clients successfully bring or defend a trust dispute.

When might a trust dispute arise?

From the deliberate theft of assets through to a failure to manage a trust’s investments, if a trustee has abused their position then the beneficiaries may bring a claim against them. Trust disputes can also arise where a fiduciary duty has been breached, for example where a solicitor trustee has stolen money, or a company director took funds. We also frequently see cases involving ‘constructive’ trustees, who are defined in law as holding property for someone else. For example, a parent gives their son £150,000 from the company as a wedding gift, in breach of the trust. The son may not have known the source of the funds but could still face a claim on the basis of being a constructive trustee.
