A Guide to setting up a trust

Trusts build upon a foundation of fundamental principles. This webinar takes us back to those principles and provides a summary of the key questions and elements which ought to be considered and assessed when the client first steps foot into the office.

The webinar is designed to be a guide for new practitioners and practitioners that are new to the law of trusts by taking us through a case study, questions to ask the client, issues that practitioners need to consider, establishing the trust, and on-going obligations.
