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.

Asset Protection Tools
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.
