Toronto Estate Litigation Lawyers for Trust Interpretation

Estate documents are rarely straightforward or easy to interpret. They are generally complex and technical documents governed by equally complex legislation and statutes. In addition, estate documents can be open to interpretation based on their language and terms contained within.

Where there is confusion or a dispute about the intent of the estate document, or about certain terms, an application can be filed requesting the Court to interpret the document or term in question and provide clarity and direction. This is done through either a) an application for advice and direction or b) an interpretation application. These applications can be filed by executors, trustees, or anybody with a financial interest in a trust or estate.

At Eisen Law in Toronto, we have many years of experience advising clients involved in estate litigation, including assisting with various applications for trust interpretation. We represent trustees, executors, beneficiaries, and others with an interest in an estate. Our goal is to provide optimal results for our clients with the least amount of conflict. We are well known and respected for resolving complicated matters and saving our clients’ money and time.

Estate Litigation and Trusts Interpretation

Most estate litigation involves disputes between trustees, beneficiaries, and would be beneficiaries, or amongst trustees (where there are multiple trustees). Often the litigation centres on the proper interpretation of the trust.

Trust interpretation and related litigation should not be undertaken without the advice and guidance of a knowledgeable estate lawyer with significant estate litigation experience. At Eisen Law we have represented all sides in trust litigation matters. We are forward-thinking, proactive, and can ascertain potential risks and pitfalls and mitigate them before they become an issue.
