EBT Trust law issues – talk by Brian Green QC

Note of a talk by Brian Green QC on Employee Benefit Trust law issues. The talk covered pension schemes and ESOPs and the triangular relationship between (i) an company (ii) trustees and (iii) beneficiaries.

Green notes that it can be easy to overlook that the trustees of an ESOP owe their duties exclusively to the beneficiaries of the ESOP and are duty bound to bring independent judgement to bear in exercising discretions conferred on them. Green lays down some general legal principals governing the law of trusts in the pensions and ESOP context and discusses specific cases in detail.
