Trust Litigation

Trust Litigation Attorneys

Trustees are accorded significant amounts of discretion in most trust instruments. However, they also have significant responsibilities. This combination of independent judgment and responsibility often leads to disputes over trusts of all types. At the Boston law firm of Taylor, Ganson & Perrin, LLP our lawyers have many years of experience litigating to resolve disputes over the performance of a trustee or other issues related to a trust.
