Private Client: The Use and Abuse of Trustee Powers

Date: 10th October 2017, 18:00 to 09:30

Location: London SW1P 3BD, United Kingdom

The Use and Abuse of Trustee Power

Our annual complimentary private client seminar and drinks reception was held at the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, Parliament Square, London, SW1P 3BD.

As well as an analysis of the modern scope and use of trust powers, we considered the application of trust powers to increase flexibility for trusts and to get trustees (and their trusts) out of trouble.

Award-winning silk Francis Barlow KC chaired a panel of recognised leaders in the traditional chancery field, who lead a thought-provoking discussion and analysis on this perennial but ever-changing topic. We covered:

  • The modern scope of trust powers
  • Using powers to update trusts
  • Using powers to solve administration issues
  • The (ab)use of powers to prevent or avoid litigation

The speakers were:

  • Susannah Meadway
  • Georgia Bedworth
  • Leon Pickering
  • James MacDougald
