A trust set up for the benefit of the director of a local company and his wife
I act for the trustees of a trust set up for the benefit of the director of a local company and his wife. The value of the trust is well over £50m and comprises property and other assets. Matrimonial proceedings are on foot in the UK between the director and his wife and corresponding injunction proceedings were also commenced in Guernsey. The trustee applied to the Guernsey court for directions as to whether to submit to the jurisdiction of the UK family court and as far as we are aware this is the first time that the Guernsey court has made such an order. The matter remains ongoing as the trustee is paying an active part in the family proceedings and the corresponding Guernsey proceedings.
