I recently advised on intellectual property structuring for a client coming into the UK having developed highly successful tech algorithms. The work involved dividing existing IP with future IP (and exploitation of current IP) and licencing these to various newly created entities across the globe.

Although the client does not live in the UK, two of his children are UK residents while another child is a US person. The fourth child has an unfortunate history of ill-advised investment decisions and the client wishes to protect his fourth child’s share from potential problems. The client has a pre-existing private trust company, which manages both a ‘family’ trust and a charitable trust. The underlying company within the family trust had to be formed into four new companies, one for each of the family branches. The shares in the new companies were then resettled by the client on bespoke trusts for the four family branches. A protector committee was established to oversee the trusts and to protect the trustees and the beneficiaries. The four companies also had a co-managed investment strategy that needed to take into account UK and US investment restrictions. The protector committee also had to take into account US and UK trust law considerations and consider management and control concerns.
