Trusts in Corporate Structuring, Trustee Liability and Cross-Border Trusts

Since trusts are increasingly being used for commercial purposes and, in some countries, most of the money held on trust is being held in commercial trusts, this year's Liechtenstein Trust Conference will focus on the uses of trusts in corporate structuring.

In a recent joint decision, the UK Supreme Court has fundamentally changed the course of case law in relation to mistakes made by trustees. Some offshore jurisdictions are now debating as to whether or not to follow this decision, and this question is also relevant to the Principality of Liechtenstein. Therefore, this question in particular and trustee liability in general will be discussed.

Most Liechtenstein trusts involve cross-border situations. This often leads to issues of recognition and enforcement of court decisions in countries which do not recognise the trust. These questions will be tackled in the final part of this year's trust conference.
The conference presentations will be given by internationally renowned practitioners and academics, who will also participate in closing panel discussion.

Target Audience

Lawyers, trustees, employees of banks, insurance companies and financial service providers, as well as any people interested in trust law
