Reasons for Asset Protection Planning
What is the likelihood that you might get sued? Most of the 70,000 civil lawsuits filed every day in America target small business owners and medical professionals. Lawsuits against small businesses, professionals and others presumed to have deep pockets have become more numerous in recent years as people lose their jobs, homes and other assets that require cash payments.
Often people see professionals and business owners as “insurance” for success. Business men and women are expected to provide the perfect product, and professionals are expected to provide a perfect outcome. When expectations meet reality it results in negligence claims, errors and omissions claims, malpractice lawsuits, punitive damage claims, and judgments.
You are permitted by law to build a defense against seizure of your personal and business assets by creditors. However, if you do not build that defense, then the law permits those creditors to seize your property.
Don't Wait to Hire a Knowledgeable Asset Protection Attorney
With sound professional guidance, high risk professionals and business people can implement defenses against future lawsuits. By working within the system, and taking advantage of specific legal and financial techniques, you can protect your hard-earned assets and future earnings. However, these techniques only work if you put them in place ahead of time. Once a lawsuit has been filed, even if it is reasonably anticipated, it is already too late.
Goal of Asset Protection
The main goal of asset protection is to avoid the loss of assets through litigation. Asset protection accomplishes this goal by:
- Deterring Litigation. A contingency fee lawyer may think twice about taking a case that is easy to win, but that will require him to wait for years to get to your assets to collect his 40%.
- Providing Incentives for Early and Inexpensive Settlement. They can sue you, and if they win, they will have a judgment. But your assets are protected and they will never collect. Will they accept 5 cents on the dollar? You better believe it!
- Causing your Opponents to Work Harder and Get Less. First, they will have to win their case against you. Next, they will have to take you to a debtor’s exam to locate your assets. Finally, they will have to try to collect, and they will not be able to. Do they really want to work that hard to never really be rewarded, or will they be interested in settling for 5 cents on the dollar?
Who Needs Asset Protection?
In today’s difficult economic times, hiring an asset protection planning lawyer is especially important for:
- Entrepreneurs and business owners.
- Doctors, dentists, accountants, lawyers, and financial planners.
- Corporate directors and officers.
