New Zealand has more trusts per head of population than anywhere in the world. It’s clear that individuals, families, businesses and not-for-profit organisations in this country are making the most of the effective asset protection and succession planning that comes with a carefully structured trust.
If you’re wondering how to start a trust, or deliberating the pros and cons of a trust, Hesketh Henry has a specialist team of estate planning lawyers for trust formation and administration. If you have an existing trust, our trust specialists can help you with the review, restructuring or resettlement in times of change. Educating trustees about their responsibilities is also part of our service.
We understand that everyone’s personal circumstances are different, which is why we don’t offer a ‘one size fits all’ solution for wills and trusts. When you work with Hesketh Henry you will receive tailor-made advice that leads to a purpose-built trust strategy and structure. Our expertise with family trust law extends to resolving disputes by arbitration, mediation or negotiation and, where necessary, through litigation.
