Asset protection is quickly becoming one of the most lucrative practice areas. From the underlying substantive law to practical aspects of asset protection planning (i.e., what works and what does not) and fraudulent conveyances, this program will teach you everything you need to know about protecting your clients’ assets from plaintiffs and creditors. Our three distinguished faculty members will cover specific planning strategies and solutions, including planning with community property, business entities, as well as domestic and foreign trusts. There is specific emphasis on protecting assets in a troubled economy, including protection from lenders and landlords holding personal guarantees. You'll learn various ways, from the very simply to the very sophisticated, to protect specific assets common to all clients: houses, bank and brokerage accounts, rental real estate, businesses and professional practices and retirement plans. Learn the judicial view on fraudulent conveyances. Course materials will serve as a treatise on asset protection as well as an exhaustive reference source for many of your planning needs and will outline and diagram the discussed planning techniques and structures.
