Assisting With The Administration Of Trusts

Administering a trust can be a job in itself. In many cases, after the death of a loved one, the fiduciary duties of trust administration fall to a family member who has been named the trustee. These duties may be particularly difficult to fulfill if the trustee is in the midst of grief.

At the office of Stephen J. Buhler, Attorney at Law, we counsel and represent trustees in the Salt Lake City area to help them properly fulfill their fiduciary duties, which may include:

  • Gathering, organizing and preserving trust assets, along with relevant documents
  • Filing tax returns
  • Notifying insurance companies, Social Security and employee benefit plans
  • Paying debts
  • Making timely distributions to beneficiaries
  • Reporting to beneficiaries

Resolving Trust Disputes

Because of the complexity of trust administration, disputes between trustees and beneficiaries are not uncommon. We help trustees avoid this kind of conflict by effectively and efficiently handling all matters of trust administration. However, if a dispute happens to arise, we can counsel on the most cost-efficient approach to resolution.

We represent trustees and beneficiaries in trust disputes involving allegations of fraud, undue influence, self-dealing and waste of trust assets.
