Trust Disputes

Sinels is a specialist in breach of trust claims.

We act routinely on behalf of beneficiaries with grievances relating to the conduct of professional trustees which may arise in a variety of circumstances and expose beneficiaries to significant losses.

Sinels can and does regularly advise on the removal or resignation of trustees, transfers of trusteeship, beneficiary requests for information, applications to rectify mistakes, applications for blessings from the Court in respect of momentous decisions, and breach of trust claims.


Sinels has acted in many high-profile trust disputes.
