From the perspective of economic production and wealth conservation, most areas of our practice concern asset protection. In reality, asset protection is more than offshore trusts, Swiss bank accounts and other exotic means to protect wealth. Asset protection encompasses a broad range of legal measures that serve to best conserve and/or protect many different types of assets from unanticipated events such as hazardous weather, accidents and lawsuits.
An asset protection plan must be customized to the specific and unique circumstances of each client and it must be periodically revised as those circumstances and case law evolve. It requires a thorough assessment of asset ownership titling and structures, insurance planning, financial planning, tax planning, and estate planning to cost-effectively enhance return on investments, minimize tax liability and the risk and exposure to unanticipated litigation.
Not only as lawyers, but as experienced business owners, developers, builders and managers, we understand, because we have succeeded and failed. This breadth of experience better helps us identify, prioritize and mitigate a wide range of risks to a variety of assets. This added knowledge base enhances our perspective and adds value to our legal services. We can better relate to and evaluate a client's situation to more concisely and efficiently prepare an asset protection plan.
Although no asset protection plan is "bullet proof"', regardless of the asset types, we can help create and implement a plan to best conserve and protect those assets. We can assess, prepare and implement a comprehensive plan immediately or in prioritized phases.
Optimally, asset protection measures work best if established long prior to any threat of litigation. However, certain measures may still provide some protection even when legal action has been threatened or pending. Planning is paramount and time is always of the essence.
