U.S. and Offshore Asset Protection
Lawyers You Can Trust
Asset protection refers to a set of legal strategies and techniques employed to safeguard your assets from potential risks and threats, such as lawsuits, creditors, or unforeseen financial liabilities. The primary objective of asset protection is to mitigate the vulnerability of valuable assets by implementing proactive measures that reduce the chances of them being seized, depleted, or unjustly transferred. By utilizing various legal structures, agreements, and financial tools, we aim to shield your assets and preserve your wealth.
Asset protection typically involves a combination of asset segregation, diversification, and the use of legal entities such as trusts, limited liability companies (LLCs), limited partnerships (LPs) and corporations, typically formed in a domestic jurisdiction but sometimes in an offshore jurisdiction. These entities act as protective shields, creating a separation between your personal and business assets and liabilities, thus minimizing your exposure to potential risks. By strategically organizing and structuring your assets, you can reduce the likelihood of loss in the event of a legal dispute or financial hardship.
It is important to note that asset protection does not entail engaging in illegal or fraudulent activities to evade legitimate debts or obligations. Instead, it involves understanding and utilizing lawful methods to protect assets within the framework of existing legal systems. While it has traditionally been thought that asset protection strategies should be implemented well in advance of any potential threats or liabilities to ensure their effectiveness and compliance with relevant laws and regulations, and while this is certainly the preferred timing for implementation of an asset protection plan, Sollertis is also able to help you implement an asset protection plan after a claim has been brought or while a claim is pending. Consulting with us is advisable to navigate the complex landscape and tailor a strategy that aligns with your goals and circumstances.
