Family Trust Lawyers

For efficient, compassionate and discreet family trust services, our expert Sydney solicitors are here to help

A family trust is a legally binding arrangement that allows you to protect income-generating assets, reduce taxes, protect property rights and distribute earnings to beneficiaries. Family trusts are also commonly used as underlying structures for family businesses, allowing you to regulate the rights and obligations of trustees and establish a plan for bequeathment.

If handled improperly, a family trust can introduce unnecessary conflict and preventable legal issues that can leave your family asset trust open for dispute.

Family trusts are generally controlled by a single trustee who has the power to make changes to the trust as required. 

Establishing a family trust has numerous structural, legal and financial benefits that go beyond protecting your assets. The benefits of establishing a family trust include:
