April 23, 2009, Manchester, NH – The law firm of McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton, Professional Association, with offices in Manchester, Portsmouth, and Concord, New Hampshire, as well as Woburn, Massachusetts, is pleased to announce the formation of its Asset Protection & Wealth Preservation Practice Group.
Created to provide clients with a comprehensive, collaborative and objective network of legal professionals to address the protection of their wealth from all angles, the group consists of some of the state’s top attorneys who are experienced in trust and estate planning, Medicaid planning, business entity selection and formation, commercial litigation, bankruptcy and family law matters.
“Appropriate asset protection strategies and solutions vary greatly depending on each client’s personal and business circumstances,” said Bill Zorn, chair of the group, who has been named one of the state’s best in Trusts & Estates Law by both Woodward & White’s Best Lawyers in America and Chambers USA’s Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers. “An integrated plan that considers all of the complex and inter-related issues that can put one’s financial stability at risk from future creditors is the best way to ensure clients against the loss of their hard-earned assets,” he explained.
Zorn goes on to clarify that asset protection is not just for the super-wealthy. “Our constant objective is to provide timely, thoughtful solutions at a reasonable cost to our clients. Most closely-held business owners and professionals in high-risk occupations are particularly vulnerable, but anyone with even a modest inheritance or trust can be at risk for such unforeseeable claims such as personal injury litigation, divorce, or long-term nursing and medical expenses. By being proactive, clients at any level of net worth gain comfort that they have taken appropriate timely action to protect their future financial stability.”
