Scottsdale Trust Administration Attorneys Guide Trustees

Arizona lawyers provide legal services to clients managing trusts

Once a grantor establishes a trust, either he or a trustworthy fiduciary must act as trustee for the trust assets. When the grantor dies, a trustee named in the trust documents must act as administrator, seeing to necessary tasks according to state law and the terms of the trust. Trust administration requires careful attention to each detail of the grantor’s wishes, as well as sound legal advice to avoid missteps for which a trustee can be held personally liable. Attorneys at Santerre & Vande Krol, Ltd. provide reliable legal guidance to trust administrators. We have ample experience on a wide variety of trusts, including:

  • Credit shelter trusts (CST)
  • Incentive trusts
  • Living trusts
  • Generation-skipping trusts
  • Qualified Terminable Interest Property (QTIP) trusts
  • Qualified Personal Residence Trust (QPRT )
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Irrevocable life insurance trusts

The attorneys at Santerre & Vande Krol, Ltd. provide highly ethical and reliable administration services to a variety of trusts, maintaining the fiscal strength of these entities to serve beneficiaries through the intended life of the trust.
