Conyers has a market leading Private Wealth Disputes team. We provide a full range of trust and estate dispute solutions and advice for high net worth individuals, trustees, executors and other fiduciaries and private banks.

Trust disputes are often heightened by family conflicts and cross-border issues. Conyers understands these challenges and will steer you through the complications. With the support of teams in Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, London, Hong Kong and Singapore, and long-standing relationships with leading intermediaries worldwide, our experienced litigators provide practical solutions and a seamless cross-border service to help our clients navigate complex situations.

Conyers has acted in many prominent trust disputes and regularly receives major instructions on contentious trust and estate matters.

Our team is highly experienced in multi-party court applications, many of which are associated with trust structuring and restructuring and have complex cross-border elements. We are also involved in the provision of expert evidence on trust law before foreign courts and arbitration hearings.

We regularly advise on the following:

  • Removal of trustees and other fiduciaries
  • Rights of beneficiaries/creditors
  • Variation of trusts
  • Breach of trust claims
  • Disputes over trust assets relating to foreign matrimonial proceedings
  • Probate and Estate disputes
