Thorough lawyers develop fixed and discretionary trusts for clients
Another important decision to consider when establishing a trust involves the allocation of assets to named beneficiaries. You can set up a fixed trust, in which the trustee carries out directions as to how and when particular assets are distributed. The other option is a discretionary trust, where the trustee has the authority to decide what specific actions best satisfy the instructions set forth by the trust creator. If you’re unsure about what type of trust best serves your needs, we will outline the advantages and pitfalls of each option.
