Presentation time: 60 minutes

Vanessa Bruton will present her very successful paper from the June 2013 Trusts Conference to provide practical advice to practitioners and to discuss lessons learned from approaches the Courts have taken in recent cases.

This webinar will discuss four key points:

  • the ‘fairness’ vs ‘form’ issue in Petrodel Resources Ltd and Ors v Prest and Ors;
  • the sham/no intention and fairness risks to trusts and relationship property structures as highlighted by Clayton v McGloskey Nominees Ltd;
  • lessons from Clayton and other recent cases applicable to early stages of planning, drafting and administration to enhance the chance of a trust’s survival of relationship breakdown, and
  • in the event of a relationship split, will offer some tips for trustees and trust advisors to maximise the survival of the trust.

It will also discuss the question of ‘illusory’ vs ‘sham’ trusts and how initial drafting can protect against ‘no trust created’/sham findings.
