Case Histories

Below, we present a few actual case histories. They involve real clients and real events, although names, dates and places have been changed to protect client privacy and confidentiality.

While these case histories may seem colorful and even dramatic, asset protection is important for everyone, including mainstream clients who simply want to keep the assets that they have worked so hard to acquire, from aggressive litigants and hungry creditors. We have been successful in protecting such diverse assets as historic New York City brownstones, a pastoral, rural horse farm, a fleet of yachts, important collections of artwork. But typically we protect the personal and business assets of people like you — startup entrepreneurs, family businesses, professionals in high-liability fields, real estate investors and owners.

We hope you enjoy reading these case histories, but please understand — we do not present them to gloat over our victories; we present them to illustrate how a properly and professionally constructed asset protection strategy will succeed in protecting your assets.
