Linklaters’ trusts team combines a strong and broadly based commercial trusts practice with equally expert private client and charities practices.
The team often works on matters originating from the firm’s pre-eminent global corporate department, usually where a trust is part of the structure of a transaction or undertaking or a body of trustees is party to the transaction.
Individuals seek Linklaters’ expertise when setting up trusts and making wills or gifts. Trustees rely on the firm’s advice on making distributions and changing the terms of their trust. Charities consult the team if they want to alter their constitution or are unsure whether they can make a particular type of grant.
