1. The answer to your question is included in the definition of 'reserved legal services' under section 12 of the Legal Services Act, 2007. Under this 'reserved instrument services' are legal services which are reserved to lawyers. A Deed of Trust is a reserved instrument which would require a formal legal qualification.
2. Reserved instrument services is further defined to include '“Instrument” includes a contract for the sale or other disposition of land. So, whilst it would be permissible to draft a trust deed of shares, it would not be permissible to include any trust deed of land.
3. So the bot***** *****ne is that you can draft an instrument which is not a Trust of land.
4. So, my own view is that the views of the solicitor are not correct. Strictly speaking you cannot draft a Deed of Trust.
