  • Jurisdiction in Switzerland in cross-border successions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 215 - 220
      Abstract: AbstractWhen a legal dispute has an international or so-called “cross-border” connection before the Swiss courts or authorities, the private international law of Switzerland (codified in the Federal Act on Private International Law) determines whether Swiss courts and authorities have jurisdiction, which substantive law is applicable, and the recognition and enforcement of foreign decisions, measures, deeds, and rights. In Swiss international law, “residence” is the main connecting factor. Thus, the terminology of “residence” is to be defined, as it is typically the entry point of any case heard in Switzerland, which does not necessarily follow the tax authorities’ or other authorities’ assessment or tax rulings for residency. In recent years, the Federal Supreme Court has had the chance to decide on various cases where residence in cross-border inheritance cases was disputed and some findings led to unexpected and unintended results.

  • Piercing the corporate veil—the trust connection

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 221 - 228
      Abstract: AbstractThe principle of separate legal entity which forms the basic foundation of company law provides for the company as a separate legal entity. This results in the formation of a veil, so to say, that protects the liability of the directors or other related companies from incurring liability. Under the Doctrine of Piercing the Corporate Veil, the said veil can be disregarded in certain circumstances. Historically, this principle has been restricted to companies incorporated under statute. However, recently, a High Court of India applied the doctrine to a Charitable Trust which is a non-corporate body. With Courts of India not providing any contours or sound reasoning towards the extension of the doctrine to non-corporate bodies, this article examines the application of the doctrine on charitable trusts, the flaws and problems that arise from such application and the possible solutions for the same while tracing evolved and developing jurisprudence surrounding the doctrine in taxation cases and trusts.

  • Clear as mud: Proprietary Estoppel after Guest v Guest

      Pages: 229 - 237
      Abstract: AbstractThe dust should now have settled since the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Guest v Guest (2022). However, in exploring recent case law, this article exposes that the rules applied to decide proprietary estoppel cases remain as uncertain as ever. Some commonality can be identified, but only in the persistent favouring of promisors over promisees. This article criticises the practical and theoretical underpinnings of proprietary estoppel and proposes further reform. In particular, the article draws new links from the doctrine of secret trusts to suggest a more just and certain basis for proprietary estoppel’s future application

  • New US deposit insurance rules for trust accounts take effect

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 237 - 240
      Abstract: AbstractOn 1 April 2024, new requirements for US bank deposit insurance coverage for trust accounts took effect. These requirements apply to insured depository institutions, which include the over 4,500 US banks and similar organizations that are chartered under US law and hold deposits that are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The new requirements apply retroactively to existing trust accounts, and some individuals may be entitled to more or less deposit insurance coverage than under existing requirements. Further, US-based banks that offer certificates of deposit (CDs), including structured CDs, to investors should be aware of how the new requirements affect their trust account clients’ deposit insurance and investment strategies and should update their program disclosures accordingly.

      Pages: 241 - 244
      Abstract: AbstractFollowing years of consultation, the ECSC Civil Procedure Rules 2000 gave way to the revamped and refreshed ECSC Civil Procedure Rules, Revised Edition 2023 (Civil Procedure Rules, Revised 2023), which came into effect on 31 July 2023. The Civil Procedure Rules, Revised 2023, brought sweeping and significant changes to civil practice and procedure, particularly in the areas of service out of the jurisdiction, relief from sanctions, and costs. The Civil Procedure Rules, Revised 2023, gave birth to a novel alternative dispute resolution mechanism, the Judicial Settlement Conference, intended to complement the well-established out-of-court arrangement of court-ordered mediations.

  • The Czech trust fund in the international context

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 245 - 247
      Abstract: AbstractIn the Czech legal system, the institute of trust funds first appeared after the recodification of private law with effect from 1 January 2014. The Czech trust fund serves as a flexible asset management tool, allowing diversification of risk and intergenerational transfer of assets. Trust funds are not the only entity which may be used for asset management. The other possibility is the endowment fund which unlike the trust fund has a legal personality. Trust funds and endowment funds do have their similarities and differences which might be crucial in order to choose the best option for founders’ needs. Czech trust funds were inspired by the Quebec legislation, while both Quebec and Czech law treat trust funds as separate properties without an owner.

  • Blessing applications: a new interventionism'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 248 - 257
      Abstract: AbstractThe court’s traditional approach to applications by trustees to approve or ‘bless’ the exercise of their fiduciary discretions is one of judicial restraint, but in recent authority, there has been an increasing trend towards judicial intervention in the merits of the trustee’s decision. This article analyses that trend and considers how practitioners can maximise the prospects of successfully securing the court’s blessing for important trustee decisions.

  • Waqf—The Muslim endowments in India: ideological and legal
           intricacies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 258 - 266
      Abstract: Abstract Waqf is the permanent dedication by any person, of any movable or immovable property for any purpose recognised by the Muslim law as pious, religious or charitable. Making waqf is considered a virtuous act in Islam. As a result, Muslims established auqaf wherever they lived. Apart from agricultural, commercial and residential properties, waqf in India includes functional/non-functional mosques, darghās (tomb or shrine of Muslim saint), khanqahās (building or space for Sufi brotherhood), maqbaras (tombs), ashoor-khanās (mourning place for Shias), qabristāns (graveyards), idghās (space to offer Eid Prayer), imam-baras (space for prayers and gatherings for Shias), etc. With the passage of time, waqf endowments started playing an important role in shaping the religious, social, educational, cultural, economic and political aspects/institutions of Muslim societies. This voluntary institution of waqf supplemented the State in fulfilment of its obligations towards the provisions of public good. This interaction between the state and the waqf created ideological and legal intricacies that have shaped the present-day waqf legislations.

  • Testamentary undue influence in Australia: should it be reformed'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 267 - 277
      Abstract: AbstractTestamentary undue influence is a doctrine distinct from the equitable doctrine of undue influence. The requirements to prove testamentary undue influence have caused academic and judicial criticism questioning whether the doctrine adequately safeguards the vulnerable testator. As the aged population increases, it is increasingly important to re-examine the level of protection afforded by the doctrine. The doctrine of testamentary undue influence should be modified to be closer in line with equitable undue influence in inter vivos transfers to enable succession law to promote more just outcomes that uphold the true intention of testators in contemporary Australia.

  • Saskatchewan law as a solution to the problem of informal wills in
           European countries'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 278 - 287
      Abstract: AbstractThis article is a presentation of the possible future of the law on the testamentary formalities, particularly in countries that adhere to very strict formal requirements. The authors present the positions of doctrine to date and conclude that the Canadian legislation in the province of Saskatchewan may offer a remedy to the problem of preparation of wills in contravention of the rules in the form of wills. In their opinion, the Canadian solution is a ready-made solution for many European legislators who would like to make their succession laws more flexible. The authors propose the wording of a provision that could be incorporated into the various legislations of European countries for this purpose.
