Our specialist Trust lawyers are highly experienced and are on hand to advise you on protecting and managing your assets now and in the future. We will help guide you through all the necessary steps, so your interests are protected.

Trusts are a way of managing wealth including money, investments, land, or property for you, your family, or anyone else who you would like to benefit including causes that you support.

When you place certain assets in a trust, they are then under the control of an appointed person(s) called ‘trustees’. The trustees are then in charge of managing the trust according to your instructions, even after your death.

Setting up a trust can be a flexible and tax-efficient way to plan for the future, provide for your loved ones, and protect vulnerable beneficiaries.

Our experienced team can support you with setting up and managing trusts, ensuring that you are able to take advantage of all the potential benefits

We can help you set up a trust to:

  • Securely pass on assets to the next generation
  • Fund education for your children and grandchildren
  • Provide for vulnerable loved ones
  • Provide for children and partners from different relationships
  • Manage personal injury compensation
  • Reduce inheritance tax payments
  • Protect assets from creditors or divorcing partners
  • Allowing you to provide gifts while retaining control of the assets
  • Protection from residential care home fees

As long as you choose your trustees carefully and are confident in the Trustees you appoint, setting up a Trust fund offers many opportunities.

Types of Trusts

Trusts are often extraordinarily complex and need specialist tax knowledge. Our expert team of Will and Trusts Solicitors will use their expertise to make sure your finances are safeguarded for you and your family.

There are many types of Trust fund designed for specific situations, however, common types are:

  • A Discretionary Trust – protects family wealth for future generations while also providing for family members
  • A Personal Injury Trust that will preserve any compensation received and still enable you to receive benefits
  • Declaration of Trust (Deed of Trust) – to regulate ownership of a house
  • Property Trust Will – to protect the value of your home
  • Trust for a Disabled Child – that will carry on throughout their life
  • Will Trust – appointing your Trustees to look after your estate until your children are old enough to inherit

There's no better time than now

People rely on us, and we pride ourselves on our client-centered advocacy and representation.

Are your existing Trusts still relevant to their original intentions?

Many trusts were set up a long time ago and so, therefore, may no longer fulfill their original objectives

  • Do you have a trust in place but have not reviewed it since the changes to the inheritance tax regime?
  • Are you a trustee requiring advice on your duties and responsibilities?
  • Are you a beneficiary of a trust and need advice as regards your position?
  • In recent years new legislation and regulations have reduced the effectiveness and benefit of trusts, however, we can make sure they are still fit for purpose by advising on the best structures for your specific needs.

  • I’ve been dealing with Rosie for a few months now, after withdrawing from a property we continued to use her for the purchase of our new one. Rosie’s changed my perception of solicitors as she always acted in my best interests, always responds very promptly to any questions (regardless of how silly). I will certainly be recommending Rosie to friends and family. I’m sure we will have dealings in the future. Value for money is seconded to none. 
    Thanks again

  • We recently used DV Solicitors for the purchase of a commercial property. Mr Nasar Ali was our solicitor. It isn’t easy with any commercial mortgage especially Lloyds but as Mr Ali’s experience showed he was excellent from start to finish. Always keeping us up to date with what was happening. Probably have about 30+ emails from him lol. Great guy, excellent service, very professional and courteous throughout the whole process. Will use and definitely recommend. 👍

  • We have used Deo Volente for the first time rewriting our wills and making changes to property ownership. Ms Farida Ahmed talked us through the process by telephone in a friendly and helpful manner. Based on our experience I would use their service again and would recommend them.
