The Asset Protection Handbook: How to Ringfence & Safeguard Your Assets
Lee Hadnum FCA CTA, author of “The Worlds Best Tax Havens” and other bestselling offshore guides looks at how you can protect and safeguard your assets. Asset Protection in General
Given the growth in the litigation culture, there's been a rush by many professionals that work in areas with a high risk of litigation to protect their assets.
The worry is that they could potentially be sued and lose a significant chunk of their wealth that they have accumulated over the years. The perceived risk of such litigation has grown due to the number of seemingly frivolous claims that have been made against wealthy professionals. The current view is that if your assets are obvious and easily reachable, you are pretty much a sitting duck.
It's not just professionals though who are interested in protecting what's theirs.
Essentially if you look as though you have deep pockets there is a risk.
