London Views – Chequing in on International Trust Litigation

Monday, November 6, 2023

Join STEP New York at our November 6 Luncheon with Geoff Kertesz, Partner, Trust and Probate Litigation at Stewarts in London.
In his presentation, Geoff will discuss, among other topics, that in the UK and other overseas jurisdictions trends are emerging that may lead to a greater volume of and complexity in disputes concerning trusts and estates. These trends are caused by both the changing attitudes and demographics of trustees and the actions of the courts themselves. An important trend is that courts have shown a notable willingness to look beyond the form of trust instruments and consider the practical effect or application of provisions and the wider context of the offshore trust industry.

Geoff will also review that recently we have seen not only the establishment of trusts challenged on the basis of lack of capacity but also decisions made by trustees and power holders based on similar capacity issues.
