Common Trust Disputes & Litigation Issues

Litigation often arises when a trust is changed or modified, when beneficiaries disagree about the validity of a trust, or when an individual wishes to dispute the appointment of a trustee. Individuals may argue that there was undue influence, rendering the trust invalid. They may attempt to establish that tortious interference existed. In any case, these and other disputes nearly always must be settled through litigation.

Common trust litigation issues include:

  • Claims of undue influence
  • Legal capacity of the trustor
  • Accounting issues/missing assets
  • Trustee’s duties disputes
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Omission of creditors
  • Coercion or forgery
  • Failure to properly or timely take inventory of assets
  • Trust mismanagement
  • Improper execution

These and other common trust-related disputes can lead to an array of complex legal issues. Whether you wish to challenge the validity of a trust or are a trustee who is facing a dispute regarding your management of the trust, it is critical that you work with an attorney who can help you navigate the following litigation process.
