Leigh Sagar examines the decision in Sheffield v Sheffield in new article ‘Sham about the sub-trust’ (Trust and Trustees Journal).


19th August 2014

Leigh Sagar contributes to Trusts and Trustees journal by examining the decision in Sheffield v Sheffield [2013] EWHC 3927 (HH Judge Pelling QC), in which a beneficiary of a trust declared himself to be a trustee of that beneficial interest but did not act as a trustee should. The article steps away from the facts of the case to examine some ideas that flow from them. It looks at sham trusts, the effect of a beneficiary declaring a bare trust of his own beneficial interest and the duties and powers of a bare trustee.
