Asset Protection Planning
Asset protection is part of an overall wealth preservation and estate planning process that also includes investment advice, income tax planning and insurance planning. Our asset protection lawyers provide asset-protection planning in many situations, such as planning for business owners of a closely held business, asset protection planning for business executives, officers and directors, individuals in high-risk situations, professionals, and family members, including the elderly and children.
We know that business litigation creates tremendous risk and exposure to our clients. As an option to litigation, our asset protection lawyers help clients establish an Asset Protection Trust. An Asset Protection Trust allows clients to retain an interest in the trust while removing it from the reach of future creditors and can protect assets from lawsuits. Current laws in several states have permitted this type of trust, which provides for the transfer of assets to an irrevocable trust. The trust incorporates spendthrift provisions in the trust document.
We take great pride in serving our clients with our personalized, concierge approach, working closely with our clients throughout their journey to effectively address legal needs. Our skilled asset protection attorneys work as a cohesive team delivering highly effective legal strategies and solutions that are proven and practical.
