In the Lowy case, the New Hampshire Supreme Court construed the terms of a trust. The court wrote that: “When we construe a trust, the intention of a settlor is paramount, and we determine that intent, whenever possible, from the express terms of the trust itself. Moreover, we reject any construction of trust language that would defeat the clear and expressed intention of a settlor.” (Internal citations omitted.)
