Reno Asset Protection Lawyer

Asset Protection in Reno, Nevada

Millions of new lawsuits are filed in the United States every year, many of which are frivolous or settled for sums greater than the actual liability. Business owners, professionals such as doctors, dentists, lawyers, accountants, and property owners in particular should be aware of the risks associated with conducting their business, practicing in their respective fields, and taking responsibility for others.

Without a massive overhaul of our legal system, the risk and potential liability are not going to decline. In fact, it has steadily increased over the past few decades.  Assets can be at risk due to a number of vulnerabilities, including:

  • Professional malpractice liability
  • Personal liability of corporate officers and directors
  • Lawsuits by former business partners
  • Personal injury suffered on your premises
  • Personal injury resulting from a motor vehicle accident
  • Liability as guarantor for the debts of another
  • Liability arising from misconduct

Our seasoned Reno estate planning attorneys assist professionals, small business owners, property owners, and other clients in establishing proven, legally sound asset protection strategies designed to safeguard assets against potential litigation, judgments, liens, and fraud.

Insurance alone does not always adequately protect against all of these threats.  We help clients protect their wealth using a variety of strategies, including the use of special trusts, business entities, and other legal arrangements.
