Trusts, Tax, Probate & Estates

A substantial element of Anna’s current practice is offshore trusts work. She is recommended as a leading junior for offshore work in Legal 500 and has experience in long running cases in a number of jurisdictions, from Bermuda and the Caribbean to the Isle of Man.

Her recent trusts work has included acting in:

  • an application for removal of trustees of an offshore trust
  • Public Trustee v Cooper applications for court blessing in highly contentious circumstances
  • trust administration proceedings seeking a range of directions and other relief
  • trust disclosure proceedings
  • Beddoe applications

Her recent cases include acting with Brian Green QC in Bermuda in the X Trusts litigation, relating to a very high value discretionary trust and in a cross-jurisdictional dispute regarding a multi-billion dollar offshore trust.

Anna often acts in highly contested and complex multi-jurisdiction claims, frequently with elements of dishonesty and/or asset recovery and involving injunctive relief and other urgent Court applications. In this context, Anna has significant experience in dealing with complex offshore asset holding structures and finds that her fraud and insolvency work often ties in well with her offshore trust work.
