Asset Protection & Business Planning
The attorneys of Hutchison & Steffen understand the importance of protecting a client’s assets against claims by potential creditors. The Firm’s attorneys employ a variety of asset protection techniques to discourage or make impractical the seizure of assets or the collection of judgments. After carefully reviewing and assessing financial goals, the Firm’s attorneys will evaluate available options and make custom-tailored recommendations for optimum asset protection. Hutchison & Steffen’s asset protection strategies include the creation of Spendthrift Trusts, Offshore Asset Protection Trusts (OAPTs), Separate Property Trusts, Dynasty Trusts, retirement plans, family limited partnerships, and the gifting of property to descendants. The Firm’s attorneys strive to identify all potentially exposed assets, before recommending methods best determined to judiciously safeguard the client’s property.
