Discretionary Trust Lawyers & Trust Beneficiaries
Many commercial activities are conducted one way or another through trusts of different types – you can have a Discretionary Trust, or a Fixed Trust, or a Unit Trust or any combination and Self-Managed Superannuation Funds. To navigate your way through the complexities, you need an expert trust lawyer, who can protect the interests of trust beneficiaries and who understand the law on trusts, in particular the complexities concerning the law on preparing a deed of variation of trust.
Peter is not only an incredibly experienced lawyer, he has provided invaluable advice and guidance on a number of general strategic business decisions. Peter has always been extremely very easy to contact and deal with and is a genuine person who exercises high levels of personal and business integrity.
Peter is a very pragmatic lawyer who I would say was a ‘go to’ person for tax and corporate tax issues. One of the reasons he is a ‘go to’ person is that he is interested in people / generous with his time.
Referred by our accountant, Peter handled complex restructuring issues within our family group of entities. His advice was professional, practical and easy to understand. After promptly dealing with this matter we further sought his advice on wills, trusts and company constitution amendments. I would have no hesitation in recommending Peter to any business large or small.
I have worked with Peter Gell since 2008, where he has provided legal services and advice across areas relating to companies, trusts, superannuation, estate planning and taxation. Peter’s level of knowledge has been outstanding, however the bonus has been his pragmatic approach and his ability to explain complex matters in simple, down-to-earth, language. Peter has been a pleasure to work with.
