Asset protection relates to a range of tactics people use to shield their assets from loss, whether from a lawsuit or unforeseen financial problems. Asset protection can be accomplished in many ways, depending on your circumstances. For instance, certain assets may be transferred into a corporation or other business entity that enjoys limited liability protection. Assets can also be assigned to a spouse or transferred overseas. The mechanisms can be complex, and an experienced lawyer should be consulted. Don’t listen to those too-good-to-be-true offers from companies claiming they can completely shelter your assets. There are many laws in place regarding legal asset protection, including tax laws and fraudulent transfer laws.
