Monument Asset Protection Lawyers
Asset protection is one of the pillars of estate planning and asset management. It refers to the various strategies, laws, and tools that lawyers leverage to help individuals and business keep their assets from creditors, bankruptcy, and lawsuits. Clients are interested in asset protection for several reasons, but generally the motivation is either to retain the assets until some future date or to get them into the hands of their loved ones when they’re gone.

There are a number of different asset protection strategies that we can employ depending on your situation and long-term goals.
What are the Best Asset Protection Strategies?
For most clients, one of the first things we do is a comprehensive exemption diagnostic. This allows us to identify your assets that are legally protected from certain estate taxes, lawsuits, and debt collection efforts. Exemptions vary based on jurisdiction. Many states have exemptions for established homesteads, insurance policies, annuities, retirement accounts, and other designated property items. Some of these exemptions are more comprehensive than others, but we can meet with you to determine which can apply to your situation.
Colorado Business Entity
After the exemption diagnostic, asset protection strategies will vary from case to case. For some clients, it might be better to create a business entity with limited liability. This can help individuals separate their personal assets from those directly linked to their professional endeavors. This helps protect their personal wealth and liability in the event of any lawsuits or creditor claims filed against the company.
Asset Protection Trust
For other clients, one or more trusts might be the best option. Trusts can be used to transfer ownership of assets to third parties, such as a trust company or some other fiduciary agent. Often, people will designate a spouse as the trustee when creating the trust for estate planning purposes. In that context, trusts can help keep your assets out of probate, which typically ensures smoother asset transfers. They also allow individuals to set up specific instructions regarding how assets should be managed. In many cases, people combine trusts with other asset protection strategies. For example, creating a business entity allows lawyers to craft more sophisticated trust structures.
