What Asset Protection Options are Available?
Like any business owner, a physician can transfer titles of assets into another’s name in order to avoid estate taxes and minimize the chance that those assets will be at risk in litigation. This includes setting up limited family partnerships or putting assets into a Nevada Corporation or Delaware Corporation to protect real estate and other business property. Another option is to transfer assets to a loved one or partner physician by means of asset protection revocable or irrevocable trusts.
At Law Offices of Gerald L. Kane, we listen to your needs and work with other experts in the asset protection realm to identify which option is best for you. We will then clearly explain the plan’s objectives so that you understand exactly how the plan will meet your financial goals.
We Stay in Contact With Clients
We know that families and businesses constantly change, requiring updates to their existing estate plan. A physician’s practice is no different. We stay in constant contact with our clients and are there for them when they need us. If your practice hires a new doctor, acquires more land or commercial real estate, has trouble with a creditor, or has any other changes, we can adjust your asset protection plan to reflect the circumstances.
