Trust litigation is increasingly common. Hostile litigation such as breach of trust disputes and applications for removal of trustees are frequently encountered in practice, as are applications for directions by trustees and other examples of less hostile litigation.

The Trusts Litigation Handbook aims to provide a clear and comprehensive account of the practice and procedure governing trust litigation, together with the relevant substantive law. It will provide practitioners with clear answers and guidance to the many questions that arise in trust litigation.

In addition to the narrative commentary, a number of expertly drafted precedents will be included.

Richard Wilson, Barrister, 3 Stone Buildings

With assistance from Edward Hewitt, Barrister, 9 Stone Buildings
