Understanding Asset Protection Strategies

What Is Asset Protection?

The goal of asset protection is to strategically insulate your assets to prevent costly lawsuits and devastating losses. While many people think that asset protection strategies are only for the wealthy, homeowners of all backgrounds benefit from asset protection because it allows them to take control of what they own.

Identifying Potential Risks to Your Assets

Our asset protection attorneys can help you understand and plan for potential liability risks property owners might face in the future. 

Crain & Wooley is here to use our extensive resources to help you protect your personal and business assets from:

  • Liability arising from misconduct
  • Personal injury sustained on your premises
  • Professional malpractice liability
  • Lawsuits filed by former business partners
  • Personal injury resulting from a car accident
  • Personal liability of corporate officers and directors

Asset Protection Tools and Techniques

Effective Tools for Safeguarding Your Wealth

When you choose Crain & Wooley to represent you, we will devise a detailed plan that will preserve your wealth and avoid business and tax losses. 

We can protect your entire fortune with the following asset protection tools:

  • Asset Planning: Real estate, stocks, and pensions are valuable components that need to be considered in your estate plan. Our lawyers can help you account for all of your assets and add the right protections to your plan.
  • Liability Protection: We can recommend strategies to minimize various risks from state and federal tax liens, claims from creditors and collection agencies, and former marriage partners or business partners.
  • Limited Partnerships: A family limited partnership can be used to shelter wealth and still retain control over the assets.
  • Domestic Asset Protection Trusts: This type of trust is an irrevocable trust that can be established to protect your assets from creditors while retaining access to the assets.
  • Third-Party Discretionary Trusts: Sometimes called “spendthrift” trusts, this allows a relative to create a trust fund with certain restrictions. Spendthrift trusts are suitable for people who are worried their loved ones might recklessly spend the funds.
  • Limited Liability Companies: An LLC is a business entity that is entirely separate from the owners. This type of business entity protects your personal assets if the LLC is a defendant in a lawsuit.

Real Estate Asset Protection in Dallas-Fort Worth

Strategies for Protecting Your Real Estate Investments

Securing your real estate assets through thoughtful estate planning involves a series of strategic actions. Initially, setting up a trust, such as a revocable living trust, is advisable. This type of trust enables you to keep control over your property during your lifetime and dictates its distribution after your passing, bypassing the probate process. Moreover, it's crucial to draft a detailed will that lays out your desires for all your possessions, including any real estate holdings.

Another strategic move is to establish joint ownership with rights of survivorship where it's feasible, as this arrangement allows the property to seamlessly transfer to the surviving co-owner, circumventing probate. Exploring transfer-on-death deeds is also beneficial, provided they are recognized in your jurisdiction. These deeds permit you to appoint a beneficiary for your property, facilitating a smoother transition upon your demise. Lastly, consulting with qualified asset protection lawyers is essential. They can help devise tax strategies to reduce estate taxes and fortify the protection of your assets, ensuring they are safeguarded for your beneficiaries as per your intentions.

Satisfied Clients Tell Their Stories

  • "Thank you and God Bless you"

    Thank you for being my Living Trust and other Estate documents attorney. Due to our move and storage of business and personal documents, we had trouble locating & we took a lot longer to respond to your drafts, etc. You were very patient with me and my needing lots of explaining of legal terms and meanings. At my age, I was concerned about getting things done but wanting it all done right. You were very prompt in responding to my questions and I think by time of signing I felt confident we had things just the way we wanted to protect my heirs. Thank you and God Bless you.

  • "Smooth and easy"
    Learning about trusts at the meal was easy and educational. The set down at the office was where the finer points of trusts was explained. That is where and when we decided to make it safe and easy for our heirs. Our final meeting where we signed everything and an explanation of each item was given went smooth and easy. All in all I would say the investment in the trust was worth it.
