Profile: Trusts

Experience and Expertise

Daniel accepts instructions from beneficiaries or trustees of family settlements in relation to the interpretation, effect, duties and liabilities arising out of trust instruments and wills.

In Killearn v Killearn & Others [2011] EWHC 3775 (Ch), Daniel acted for the 4th Defendant in successfully resisting a life tenant’s proposed sale of trust property at a particular price to a particular purchaser. Jeremy Cousins QC held that the evidence in relation to the property’s value and condition did not support that approach, and it would be inconsistent with the trustees’ duty to the beneficiaries to sell without a proper marketing campaign to maximise the price.
