Asset Protection Planning: Sheltering Assets from Potential Liabilities - Manchester

Please join McLane Middleton attorneys William V.A. Zorn and Christopher R. Paul on Friday, October 12, 2018, from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. for a presentation to discuss the benefits of asset protection planning.

Asset protection planning involves utilizing various strategies to protect accumulated and future wealth from potential liabilities, such as lawsuits, creditors, and divorce. This type of planning can be beneficial for those in high liability professions, such as physicians and business owners, and for those who have accumulated significant wealth, especially real estate holdings. During the presentation, Attorney Zorn and Attorney Paul will discuss asset protection trusts, limited liability companies, spendthrift trusts, prenuptial agreements, and other techniques that are used in asset protection planning. These strategies generally need to be implemented before the liability arises in order to avoid the “fraudulent transfer” rules. It is critical that clients and their advisors understand and consider the options and strategies available to help preserve business and family wealth from being depleted by future liabilities.

Agenda
Registration/Networking - 7:30 a.m.
Program - 8:00 to 9:00 a.m.

Cost
This event is being offered as a free education session.

McLane Middleton
