Trusts

Carving the structure of a client’s financial legacy requires more than knowledge of the law. It deserves sensitivity. At Callenders, this responsibility is taken very seriously.

In addition to careful design and documentation of confidential trust instruments to ensure the security of beneficiaries, attorneys and associates at Callenders specialize in estate administration.

The firm also assists in creating trust/corporate structures which involve multi-jurisdictional assets. Callenders believes strongly in the consideration of incorporation for another reason—the smooth flow of assets to beneficiaries by way of shares at the appropriate time. In the area of Trusts & Estates, Callenders specializes in Administration of Estates, Establishment of Trusts, Estate Planning and the Preparation of Wills. Whether through Will and Probate or through a Trust, estate administration and the wishes of the deceased are less likely to be exposed to challenge when assets are in the form of shares and the distribution of those shares is clearly spelled out in the company’s Minutes.

Current expertise includes:

  • Advising Settlors
  • Estate and Succession Planning
  • Preparation of Fixed and Discretionary Trusts
  • Litigation on Behalf of Trustees or Beneficiaries
  • Variation and Rectification of Trusts
