Lunchtime Lecture No. 2
Thursday 4th October in the Dorey Room, St James at noon.
“M v St Annes Trustees and Liang v RBC Trustees (Guernsey) Ltd”
Advocate Anthony Williams of Appleby (Guernsey) LLP, will discuss the recent ground breaking decisions of the Guernsey Courts in M v St Anne’s Trustees and Liang v RBC Trustees (Guernsey) Ltd, which have an important impact on the administration of Trusts in Guernsey. M v St Anne’s Trustees considered the scope of the rule of Hastings Bass in Guernsey. In Liang v RBC Trustees (Guernsey) Ltd the Royal Court considered for the first time a private law action which raised issues concerning the effect of the consent regime under Guernsey’s anti-money laundering framework. Appleby acted in both matters.
Followed by Q&A session.
