The law of trusts is complicated and ever-evolving. Trusts are generally understood to be a financial planning mechanism, often utilized to maximize tax benefits, and frequently used for estate planning purposes.
However, trusts also arise in many other circumstances, such as where a contract has been frustrated, or where one person or entity has taken unfair advantage of the vulnerability of another. Issues also arise as to the management of trust assets, and the duties that a trustee owes to a beneficiary.
