Asset protection is defined as the safeguarding of wealth and assets from attack by future, unsecured creditors. The assets that we have protected include liquid assets, securities, real estate, business interests, professional practices, works of art, intellectual property, cars, boats, jewelry, and virtually anything of value. We protect these assets from threats such as aggressive litigants and predatory creditors and preserve the assets for the benefit of our clients and their families.
We protect assets using domestic laws and entities such as limited partnerships, trusts, and corporations, as well as the laws of foreign countries. We have been pioneers in this field and have developed domestic and international asset protection strategies that enjoy an impeccable record of success.
The privacy of our clients is paramount. We carefully safeguard the privacy of our clients and the confidentiality of their assets. Rather than basing asset protection strategies on the supposed “banking secrecy”, we use the law – both U.S. and foreign – to create secure, impenetrable barriers around those assets. As a result, our asset protection strategies have withstood the test of time as well as governmental and judicial scrutiny.
Internationally, we have developed strategies utilizing asset protection trusts, corporate entities, limited partnerships, and more esoteric vehicles such as foreign annuities and private placement insurance, which have successfully protected clients’ assets in extremely sensitive situations.
In order to ensure the safety of our clients’ offshore assets, we have developed long-standing relationships with well-credentialed international banking institutions, attorneys, trustees, and government officials at the highest levels in various offshore jurisdictions.
