Asset protection helps you gain leverage against potential legal threats.
People call us interested in setting up an asset protection plan. Or they want to upgrade the plan they already have.
These people have done their research and have spent a lot of time worrying before calling us. They want to know whether this entity or that entity (like an offshore trust or LLC) will withstand the worst imaginable circumstances. This is understandable – you’ve already imagined these worst imaginable circumstances. You are sure that you will go straight from being served a lawsuit to this extreme. You want to get value for the cost of your plan.
What is this “worst imaginable circumstance” that people are imagining? You get sued, you lose the lawsuit, you get a judgement against you, and then a creditor attacks and tears down your asset protection structure. They threaten you with jail time because you won’t “give up the goods.” You are disgraced, your assets are in jeopardy, and you spent all that money on a plan for NOTHING!
