Course Aims:

The aim of this podcast is to introduce the listener to the concept of the 'dog leg' claim. This is a claim brought by beneficiaries directly against the directors of a corporate trustee for breach of trust.

It looks at the troubled history of the claim, how it might be justified and looks at other more conventional means to get around the problem of enforcing an indirect fiduciary relationship.

Outcomes:
After completing the course you will:
  • Understand the theoretical basis for a dog-leg claim and how it has been argued over the years;
  • Understand how the claim has been received in other jurisdictions;
  • Understand the limitations of a dog leg claim and how those limitations might be got around by other means.
