Trusts Advisory Group

Private clients need trusted advisers. The strength of our team is in the quality and breadth of experience of our lawyers, who work together to deliver a discreet and professional service.

Ogier's Trusts Advisory Group draws together experts from different disciplines and locations to provide a seamless contentious and non-contentious advisory service which also includes relevant corporate support.

Our Private Wealth team advises trustees, private banks and ultra-high net worth clients on the lifecycle of trusts from establishment, restructuring and administration to succession planning. We have in-depth knowledge of trusts and foundations, enabling us to provide flexible and practical guidance on choosing the most effective jurisdiction. The team combines with our corporate specialists to provide commercially focused corporate advice regarding companies that underlie trust structures or on new investments structures as they arise.

The Trusts Advisory Group draws together contentious and non-contentious trust practitioners. Our Dispute Resolution specialists have a particularly strong track record, having acted successfully in many of the headline international trust and private client matters in recent years in BVI, Cayman, Guernsey and Jersey.
