Guidelines: Trustee Representation

Trustee of a Trust

A Trustee acts as a custodian to assets that are part of a Trust. He or she is responsible to manage and administer the Trust’s finances in accordance with the instructions. Often, the Trustee who creates the Trust will be the one responsible for managing and administering the finances of the Trust until they become disabled or die.

What is Trust litigation?

Trust litigation is contesting or defending a Trust in court. While Trusts are created to avoid probate, it does not stop the grantor’s children from bringing legal action against the Trustee in court to get the Trust set aside for various reasons or compel the Trustee to pay for breaching fiduciary duties.

What is Probate litigation? 

Probate Litigation refers to a legal dispute between an Executor and a Beneficiary during the probate administration process due to various claims such as Misappropriation of Funds, Undue Influence, Lack of Transparency, and asks the court to fix and solve the dispute by challenging the validity of a trust or will.
