Protect Your Dream
Don’t be caught unprepared.
Divorce, inheritance, health issues, creditors, employees, theft, changing markets, malpractice suits, sexual harassment claims, natural disasters and disgruntled business partners are just a few issues that can result in devastating lawsuits for unprepared business owners. The highest level of risk falls on those who think they are immune.
Americans are now more concerned than ever about protecting their assets from creditor claims, taxes, divorce and other disasters. Rightly so.
The more success you have (especially in business, professional practice or real estate activities), the more at risk you are as others see your success grow.
Here’s some of the “risky behavior” you may be engaging in right now:
- Are you an attorney or physician?
- Do you have rental properties or employees?
- Do you work in construction or perform professional services?
- Will you be signing loan documents, a personal guaranty or a lease?
- Are you getting married and have children from a prior marriage or separate property assets you are bringing into the marriage?
Here’s the thing: all of these activities are activities we want to see you do more of! They are, in many ways, the spice of life. But we don’t want that spice to become too hot and impact your life negatively. That’s where we come in. We can set up your business and life structures to ensure that you can take maximum risk with minimum worry.
We assist our clients in determining the appropriate level of asset protection planning for their particular circumstances. We will consider insurance, prenuptial agreements, asset segregation, choice of jurisdiction, gifting, LLCs, partnerships, corporations, and asset protection trusts. Customized combinations are layered depending on the needs of the client and as appropriate.
There are many different strategies to accomplish the protection of your assets while you are alive and after you are gone. To find out which strategies may be right for you, contact us for a Family Wealth Planning Session.
And if you have a business, your very first step is to ensure that your business is set up correctly; contact us for a LIFT (Legal, Insurance, Financial and Tax) Audit of your business foundation and recover any of the money that may be leaking from your business today.
