Asset Protection Trusts

You can set up an asset protection trust which allows you to name yourself as the beneficiary of the trust. This allows you to retain access to the property in addition to having limited control over it.

Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) as Asset Protection

LLCs can be utilized as part of a well-rounded estate plan to effectively reduce estate taxes your decadents would have to pay upon receiving an inheritance from your estate. You may also be able to transition your assets to your children during your lifetime without realizing major gift taxes. This method of estate planning also allows you to maintain control over your assets. The circumstances of your situation will dictate if this is a good option for administering your estate planning, and our estate planning attorneys would be more than willing to discuss this option with you!
