Product description

As economic entities, commercial trusts are just as transactionally active as companies. Despite their similarities, however, it is not always appreciated just how different they are from companies, and how little protection the law offers to those who transact with them. Transacting parties are vulnerable to a range of risks when dealing with a trust and trustee. Unlike other textbooks and casebooks on trusts, Transacting with Trusts and Trustees deals with these practical issues in an applied way.
