Our trust lawyers advise on trusts, wills and probate with a view to asset protection, inter-generational wealth transfer, ring-fencing of assets (whether in Hong Kong or abroad) from creditors, and the minimization of loss of wealth through potential conflicts or disputes among family members or taxation.
Where appropriate, our practice works in conjunction with our other practice areas in corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, private equity and hedge funds to facilitate the making of investments through trusts and to provide an overall wealth management structure.
At Timothy Loh LLP, we offer you in-depth guidance trusts whether it be on the holding and control structure for your family assets, helping you to leave an enduring legacy aligned with your vision. Our knowledge of trusts enables us to tailor recommendations for the optimal vehicle that is best suited for your needs.
Our offerings include the formation of inter vivos and testamentary trusts and the administration of trusts including devising arrangements to enable a settlor (or testator) to maintain limits on the trustee’s control over trust property and assets, whether through private trust companies, letters of wishes, memoranda of wishes, or a reservation of powers.
