Helping Clients Screen Off Personal and Business Assets
If you are investing in any sort of business enterprise, whether as an individual or as part of a partnership or joint venture, you likely want to protect yourself and your family by screening off your personal assets from your business investments.
We use a variety of structures — including estates, corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs) — to help clients protect their assets from potential risks.
These risks include but are not limited to business bankruptcy and exposure to employee liability, product liability, premises liability, or any other type of commercial liability. Asset protection can also play an important role in estate planning.
Taking Every Step to Protect Investors From Liability
If asset protection devices are not set up properly, the corporate formalities are not observed, and personal and business assets are commingled, investors can find themselves liable for business debts and judgments under the legal concept of veil-piercing.
To avoid this dangerous exposure, you should consult with an experienced lawyer who is familiar with the provisions of the law as well as the practical concerns of investors. Contact us to discuss how we can help you pursue your investment goals.
