Essential Reading
Drafting Trusts and Will Trusts in Canada, 5th Edition examines both the general and the technical issues that can arise in this area of the law, and deftly combines advice on the substantive law with useful drafting direction. The commentary covers the full range of practical concerns that underpin trust drafting, and highlights the possible problems practitioners may encounter, from coast to coast.

In addition, the volume contains a comprehensive collection of skillfully crafted precedents that will be invaluable to lawyers and will help them avoid potentially costly mistakes. The precedents adopt a drafting style which reads simply and naturally, and are complemented by extensive insightful explanations. The precedents are included on a USB that accompanies the book and makes searching for the relevant forms more efficient and effective.

  • A review of the most recent case law and current statutory provisions
  • New and improved precedents on a USB, replacing the companion CD
