Expert legal and financial advisers in trusts and asset protection

Trusts are normally prepared for inheritance tax reasons and to protect assets.

The following is a short guide to some of the trusts commonly used by families, individuals and business owners for asset protection and tax and estate planning purposes, for which Wrigleys has a team of dedicated solicitors with years of knowledge and expertise.

Lifetime Trusts

Property, cash, investments or policies can be placed in to a trust to be held for your beneficiaries, for example a spouse, children or grandchildren.

Such trusts are set up by a person during their lifetime and so different form trusts which are created in wills.

Specific Trusts

Wrigleys can also advise you on more specialised trusts designed for specific purposes such as:         

  • Asset Protection Trusts;
  • Charitable Trusts;
  • Employee Trusts;
  • Disability Trusts / Special Needs Trusts;
  • Personal Injury Trusts; and
  • Care Fee Planning Trusts.

Trust Management

In addition to advising on and setting up trusts, Wrigleys also manage trusts on your behalf which may include:

  • Annual accounts;
  • Tax returns;
  • Distributions from the trust; and
  • Winding up the trust.

Please contact us for further details or to discuss your requirements, or you can view our free Trusts brochure in the Downloads tab at the top of the page.
