This important collection of essays by a distinguished group of trust lawyers demonstrates that trusts law continues to be an area of great vitality and practical significance. Trusts is a subject that excites interest with its mixture of sophisticated thinking and practical commercial application. The papers in this volume not only have international appeal but also cover areas which are currently important to the legal profession. The essays range widely over subjects as varied as non-charitable purpose trusts (important for their use in tax havens in commercial and estate planning roles), the protector (a figure increasingly introduced to discretionary trusts in tax havens), pension trusts (important in the light of recent pension fraud), the duty of care owed by company directors to the company, liability and remedies for breach of trust, equities reaction to modern domestic relationships and taxation of the constructive trustee.
