When Estate Planning, Trusts And Businesses Intersect

Many family businesses are owned by trusts. While this arrangement has key advantages, it can become complex when disputes arise — for example, when beneficiaries are not happy with their distributions, when a trustee is trying to manage the business or when managers fail to uphold their responsibilities. These issues can quickly escalate into costly litigation.

Here are a few additional reasons why you can rely on our lawyers:

  • Our partners have more than 65 years of combined experience litigating trust and business disputes. Few other law firms can claim such a strong background in both areas.

No-Contest Clauses

Many trusts have no-contest clauses that could cut you out as a beneficiary should you challenge the trust. However, this doesn't necessarily mean you have no remedies. Professional legal advice is all the more critical in these situations. Our attorneys can help you pursue a successful resolution without jeopardizing your rights.
