Helping You Protect What You Earned
Depending on your situation, we will elaborate for you a customized plan of setting up trusts and other instruments to protect your assets against creditors and some actions or events, which may have a detrimental effect on your financial stability.
One of the major requirements of a sound strategy is to plan everything well in advance. For instance, if you set up a trust too close to a future lawsuit, you may face an adverse court decision just because of the presumption that you transferred your assets to the trust in anticipation of the coming litigation. The rationale for this is that you might plan to set up this trust specifically to avoid your creditors’ claims that you knew were coming.

Everyone who wants to make his or her asset protection structure legal and sustainable must follow certain requirements. The first and most important among them is that the assets must have a lawful and documented source and must not be a part of any illegal plan or activities.
US trusts are widely used by US residents for estate planning and wealth transfer. However, the importance of the US asset protection trusts for non-residents is still significantly undervalued. Few US non-residents know that some US States adopted special asset protection legislation that favors setting up and maintaining such kinds of trusts there. Among them, Delaware, Alaska, Nevada, Wyoming, South Dakota, and others. Depending on your circumstances and preferences, we can set up a US trust for you in one of the most favorable States.
Although US trusts offer solid protection for estate planning and other long-term strategies, some clients need to diversify their tools. In this respect, offshore trusts can be beneficial. They offer a superior level of defense against creditors’ lawsuits and other foreseeable and unforeseeable events that can harm clients’ financial well-being. We have multi-year collaboration experience with the best attorneys in offshore countries, including Cook Islands, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Cyprus, Lichtenstein, British Virgin Islands (BVI), Gibraltar, Mauritius, and others.
