Lewis Williams's specialisms
Our in-depth knowledge and practical experience means we are highly adept at delivering the best solutions. We establish trusts in a number of key global jurisdictions for a wide range of clients.
A foundation can be an effective planning tool for private wealth, asset protection, charitable reasons and, in some jurisdictions, may be used for commercial purposes.
A foundation shares the characteristics of a trust, in that it does not have shareholders but instead has a founder and beneficiaries. It also has its own legal personality and the ability to enter into contracts in its own right. A foundation is run in accordance with its regulations, by a council as opposed to directors or trustees.
