The authors of this essential textbook have more than 65 years combined experience practicing law and are the go-to authorities in the area of drafting trusts and will trusts. In the fifth edition of Drafting Trusts and Will Trusts in Canada, they continue to offer the guidance and direction that practitioners can rely on when facing the sometimes daunting task of drafting these important documents.

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.
