We are pleased to host Clare Stanley QC and Jamie Holmes from Wilberforce Chambers, speaking on the following topics:

Quistclose trusts update - Clare Stanley QC

  • Recap of the basic principles
  • Indicia of Quistclose trusts
  • Why they are useful
  • Recent developments

A sea-change in Saunders v Vautier rights? - Jamie Holmes

  • The impact of Rusnano v Molard & Pullborough [2019] on Saunders v Vautier (1841) Cr. & Ph. 240 rights under discretionary trusts.
  • The distinction drawn in Re Exeter Settlement [2010] between beneficiaries of a discretionary trust and objects of a power to add beneficiaries.
  • The impact of Rusnano in the wider Offshore and Common Law world – is this limited to jurisdictions with statutory Saunders v Vautier provisions?
  • Potential consequences for ‘Red Cross’ or ‘Black Hole’ trusts.

Please note this is a lunchtime lecture.

Lunch will be served before the presentation kindly sponsored by Wilberforce Chambers.

We are looking forward to seeing you there.
