Thought Leaders 4 Private Client The Rare Trust Derivative Action Webinar


14 January 2021 - 14 January 2021


Virtual Event


Ogier Partner Nicholas Brookes will join a panel for a Thought Leaders 4 Private Client virtual event.

The session titled "The Rare Trust Derivative Action: How Special are Your Circumstances?" will examine the circumstances in which beneficiaries of a trust may be entitled to bring in their own name, but on behalf of the trust, an action which belongs to the trustee, because the trustee either cannot or will not; explores the special circumstances test; and reviews recent case law in this area. The session will cover the following:

  • The seminal Supreme Court decision in Roberts v Gill
  • The recent Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal decision in Paraskevaides v Citco
  • Lines v Wilcox – a development in the case of inter-beneficiary disputes?
  • Uses of the doctrine in commercial litigation – Hamblin v World First Ltd
