Peters & Peters

Trust Litigation

Peters & Peters has specialist experience acting for and against trustees. Over recent years we have been involved in many trust disputes, often with an international dimension.

We can advise where claims are being made against trustees or where information is being sought about a trust and its assets.


We have experience of contested Beddoes applications. We also act against trustees where breach of trust and misconduct are alleged.


Peters & Peters has been instructed in a number of family disputes concerning trust beneficiaries and we seek to resolve these through negotiation or mediation where possible.


In our asset tracing work, we often set aside sham trusts to secure assets which have been placed within them. This can be particularly challenging in some offshore jurisdictions so we work closely with leading practitioners around the world to assist.


We regularly deal with complicated issues of constructive trusts relating to the proceeds of fraud.
