We Can Help You Protect Your Personal Assets
When you provide legal counsel to clients with considerable assets distributed across a number of complex holdings, as Hackard Law does, you learn one thing rather quickly: people rarely call to tell us how well things are going. More often than not, they reach out because they are facing a legal issue, such as a lawsuit against a business they own, and they want to protect their personal assets.
Our lawyers provide knowledgeable estate planning services that help high-asset clients properly protect their personal wealth from creditors, lawsuits, professional malpractice claims, business bankruptcy, foreclosure deficiencies, relatives and other potential threats.
Plan Ahead For Ultimate Protection
It is important to take proactive measures before a claim or liability arises. Planning ahead pays dividends, while procrastination can be an unforgiving adversary. For example, if you own a business that has encountered hard times and is on the brink of bankruptcy, it is a good idea to let us review your estate plan to ensure that your personal savings are protected.
We have worked with entrepreneurs and high-asset families throughout Northern California for more than 30 years. Our clients have included real estate developers, the family of a Fortune 400 company and a professional athlete. Many of them are concerned about maintaining control of their personal wealth and avoiding family disputes over their estate. We get it. We accomplish their objectives by making creative use of an assortment of financial and estate planning tools. These include:
- Asset protection trusts
- Limited liability companies (LLC)
- Family limited partnerships
- Equity stripping
