Why Asset Protection Matters in Texas

Asset protection involves devising a legal strategy to secure your assets. It allows individuals or business owners to control the extent to which creditors can access their assets. The key goal of asset protection is:

Minimizing risk by safeguarding your personal and/or business assets from creditor claims.

As a business owner, creating a business plan to address critical issues as you age is essential. You may need to think about succession planning – deciding who will assume control of your business when you retire or pass away.

The Advantage of an Asset Protection Plan

Our skilled lawyers at the Law Office of Bryan Fagan, PLLC can assist you in developing a comprehensive asset-protection plan. This plan will serve as your shield against any future lawsuits or creditor claims.

If you’re an individual or a business owner unfamiliar with asset protection and business planning, you may not fully understand the risks involved in a lawsuit or claim and how these could impact your and your family’s wealth. An asset protection plan uses legal tactics to secure your assets and ensure they remain within your family.

Creating an Asset Protection Plan Today

You cannot establish an asset protection plan once a creditor has filed a claim against you. It must be done beforehand due to laws preventing you from transferring assets out of your name to evade a creditor. Engage our asset protection lawyers to help you devise a legal plan to mitigate risks and secure your valuable assets.
