Filippo Noseda, Partner in Mishcon Private and visiting professor at King's College London, has been appointed as a Judge at the San Marino Court for Trusts and Fiduciary Relations for the period 2020-2025.

San Marino was one of the first civilian jurisdictions to introduce a domestic trust law as part of its recognition of trusts under the Hague Trust Convention.
The small jurisdiction, which is surrounded by Italy, is particularly attractive for prospective Italian settlors, as Italy was the first civilian country to ratify the Hague Trust Convention in 1992 and introduce statutory rules to deal with the tax treatment of trusts in 2007, has yet to introduce a domestic trust law.
The previous members of the specialist trust court included Prof. Paul Bernard Matthews of King's College (now a High Court Judge), Prof. David Hayton and Prof. Maurizio Lupoi, commonly known as the 'Italian father' of trusts.
