What Are Trusts?

A trust establishes the legal relationship between the trustor and trustee wherein the trustor gives their property to the trustee to hold for future beneficiaries. That asset or property is then held “in trust” and the trustee has the right to manage and use them. This is curtailed by their fiduciary duty to use the assets held in trust to benefit the beneficiaries or protect the estate from creditors.

There are various recognized forms of trusts that provide for or limit a trustee’s power, and our Vancouver trust attorneys can help you pick the legal vehicle that will be right for your unique situation. This may include an educational trust to limit disbursement to be used only for a beneficiary’s academic pursuits or a special needs trust to provide for a loved one with a disability. We will look at your financial circumstances and the condition of your estate to help determine the trust that will best benefit your heirs.

Depending on your situation, we can help you draft and execute the following trusts:

  • Irrevocable or revocable trusts
