Sample Trusts and Trust Provisions

This section contains a compilation of sample trusts and trust provisions for consideration by legal counsel. This sample language is intended as an option for review and use by competent legal counsel. Peak Trust Company does not provide legal or drafting advice.

Sample Trusts

Each of these sample trusts is not only designed for a different purpose, but the dispositive and non­dispositive provisions also vary from form to form. For example, the class of beneficiaries under one sample trust may differ from the class in another. Further, some have provisions for Trust Protectors (who can remove and replace trustees) and others do not. However, each is intended to be an Alaska or Nevada trust. The client’s attorney should select appropriate provisions for the client’s unique situation.
