On Tuesday, 24 May 2022, STEP Manchester will be delighted to welcome Thomas Dumont QC of Radcliffe Chambers, Lincoln’s Inn, to Manchester to present the next in its series of Briefings in a face-to-face session.  The talk will follow the Branch AGM.

Mr. Dumont will examine the perils and pitfalls, opportunities and advantages of both appointments and advances. We are all well used to trust deeds which enable trustees to use either procedure.  But they can have different requirements and different consequences.  Getting it wrong could bring a trustee into conflict with beneficiaries, and even into court, though there is - sometimes - light at the end of the tunnel.

To spice up the talk, Mr. Dumont will also touch upon perpetuity issues and, in particular, those aspects that may need to be taken into account when considering an appointment or an advance.

Thomas Dumont QC is one of the most in-demand barristers for private client matters, including contentious trusts and probate, family provision, and professional liability disputes. He has been Advocate of the Year at STEP’s Private Client Awards, one of the Lawyer’s Hot 100, and among City Wealth’s Most Highly Regarded Figures in Private Wealth Management. He has won cases in the Supreme Court, the Administrative Court, and the Court of Appeal, as well as the High Court. He is recognised for his expertise in advising and acting for charities. His clients range from landed families and trust companies on and offshore, to entrepreneurs and national charities.
