Asset Protection

We develop tailored asset and business structuring solutions to enable our clients to minimise the risk to their personal or family wealth as a result of their business activities, to protect key business assets from legal and economic risk, and to minimise tax.

Our advice about the most effective structuring of asset protection strategies is informed by our hands-on experience in our insolvency practice, where we frequently act for trustees-in-bankruptcy or liquidators seeking to unwind (or family members seeking to defend) such transactions.

Our structuring solutions typically involve the use of companies, trusts, registered debentures, licence agreements, and appropriately structured intercompany finance arrangements, to quarantine an enterprise’s critical assets from its trading or other risky activities, and to quarantine family wealth from risky transactions such as directors’ guarantees.
