Course Description

America is a litigious country. For professionals such as accountants, doctors, lawyers, pharmacists, architects, and engineers, the risk of a lawsuit is especially perilous because state law does not allow these individuals to use the corporate shield to protect against personal liability for claims of malpractice.

This seminar is a general exploration of what asset protection is all about and the various legal strategies available to better protect wealth from the claims of potential creditors. There will be a light discussion about some differences between U.S. states and foreign jurisdictions.
