Trust protectors are special additions to new and existing trusts that provide additional control and benefits. Without a trust protector, some needs that may surface during the course of trust administration may be unnecessarily time-consuming and costly. Instead, a trust protector can be granted certain authorities to help oversee the terms of the trust, the actions of trustees, and distributions to beneficiaries.
An individual or entity can serve as a trust protector. TrustCounsel offers these services through TrustProtector, LLC.
