Debt, death and divorce: often grimly cited as the estate agent’s best friends, they are also three main harbingers of trust litigation.

The last of these can be particularly troublesome for trustees, who can find themselves in a difficult position when a beneficiary (or beneficiaries) of a discretionary trust divorce, especially when it is taking place in the English courts. There are many reasons why alarm bells start ringing for a trustee in such cases.

Find out how to navigate the stormy waters in a 1 hour update featuring;
