Drafting Trusts and Will Trusts Summary


Drafting Trusts and Will Trusts: A Modern Approach by James Kessler

With an emphasis on clarity and ease of understanding, this title aims to cut through verbosity and avoid all outdated and unnecessary complexities to help the practitioner prepare trust documents which are exactly what the client requires. It contains advice to simplify the drafting process and goes through the general issues in drafting trusts and will trusts, the choices which have to be made and the issues that concern the settlor and testator, the appropriate choice of beneficiaries, protecting trust funds against the divorcing spouse or creditors of beneficiaries, and the appropriate controls on trustees. The book covers the technical issues involved in drafting settlements; common mistakes and traps; which matters are essential to cover and matters which may safely be omitted. It discusses the meaning and suitability of a wide range of forms commonly found in settlements. The text should assist anyone trying to understand the terms of existing settlements, as well as drafting new ones

Drafting Trusts and Will Trusts Reviews


This original and thought-provoking book will be invaluable to trust practitioners, whether aspiring or experienced. It is imparted in such a refreshingly light style that the reader is scarcely conscious of the profound learning which the author, a practising barrister, brings to his subject. . . . An impressive, thought-provoking and learned work which is lucidly written and elegantly produced. Any trust practitioner of whatever vintage will profit from reading it. The reviewer highly recommends the book as a refreshing and practical approach to a difficult subjectThis is a marvellous book. . . Deserves the warmest welcome and the author the deepest gratitude of the profession. It can be confidently recommended. With a work such as this, the question is not whether a TEP should have a copy. If he does not already possess in his library one of the earlier edititions then the matter is simple. He should buy this one. Law Society's Gazette
