Drafting British Virgin Islands Trusts

Written by James Kessler QC, Tony Pursall and Naresh Chand, this crucial guide, published August 2014, explains the issues involved in Drafting British Virgin Islands Trusts. The title offers an extensive selection of trust precedents to suit a wide range of requirements, and helps to ensure that practitioners prepare accurate and effective trust documents which precisely meet client requirements and reflect the current law and practice.

This first edition is based on James Kessler’s Drafting Trusts and Will Trusts – A Modern Approach, 11th edition. The intention is for it to be an aid to the British Virgin Islands drafter, discussing the variety of issues which commonly arise when drafting British Virgin Islands trust documents.

The book provides a set of precedents written in plain legal English for the different types of trusts and certain ancillary documents governed by British Virgin Islands law, together with a detailed commentary on the text of those precedents – which are also available on CD-Rom.

Features include:

  • Precedents
  • Practical guidance on the current law
  • Detailed commentary on the recent changes to the VISTA Act and other trust-related laws
  • Legal analysis
  • Information on the various types of trusts including discretionary trusts, purpose trusts, VISTA trusts and charitable trusts.
