About the Webinar

Poor or rushed drafting when establishing or varying trusts in estate planning can result in expensive and protracted disputes and litigation. This session will focus on drafting from a dispute prevention perspective to ensure you ‘get it right the first time’ when establishing trusts in an estate planning context. Specifically, this session will cover:

  • The key provisions to include when drafting a trust deed including amendment powers, defining the class of beneficiaries, no-contest clauses
  • Circumstances when a trust variation may result in the unintentional resettlement of the trust, and tips for avoiding this
  • Practical tips for managing the drafting and execution of variations, exercise of discretion, transfer of control, change of beneficiaries, including removal or narrowing the class of beneficiaries in light of Owie
  • The extent to which the trust deed can or should direct the exercise of trustee discretion
  • Drafting lessons to be learned from the Mercanti decision
