Advising an UHNW individual in relation to a US$1.4 billion dollar Cayman Islands trust
Richard has led our London and Hong Kong private wealth team to advise an ultra-high net worth individual in relation to a US$1.4 billion dollar Cayman Islands trust and its underlying companies. Our client is both a member of the protector committee and beneficiary of the trust and a director of a number of the underlying companies. The companies are operating and property holding companies in Hong Kong, China and USA. Our advice has covered a wide range of issues in relation to the trust (including disputes and resolution of those disputes within the protector committee, with the trustee and within the beneficiary group), management and administration of the underlying companies and tax matters.
