Trustee liability

There is no special status at law that attaches to acting as a trustee such that personal liability can be avoided. Accordingly, unless liability is limited, a trustee is personally liable for any debt incurred when acting as a trustee. Today's presentation will consider where trustee liability arises and what trustees can do to avoid liability.
