Representation For Beneficiaries
As a beneficiary — that is, someone entitled to benefit from the trust and receive payouts or assets in accordance with its terms — you have important rights. The trustee must faithfully manage the trust for your benefit, not for his or her own gain. If you suspect the trust is being mismanaged, or if you believe the trustee is not living up to his or her obligations, you may need to pursue a lawsuit to enforce your rights.
Our lawyers can listen to your concerns, assess your situation and provide guidance on the best direction to proceed.
Representation For Trustees
Trustees are subject to numerous legal duties. As a trustee, you must execute these duties with an exacting level of care and detail. Yet even the most careful trustee can sometimes face litigation stemming from allegations of breaches. Because you may be personally liable for alleged breaches, it is critical to mount a strong defense.
We provide diligent representation for fiduciaries facing trust disputes. Our legal team can help you navigate the challenges of trust litigation with the aim of protecting your interests.
