As a business owner, you understand the importance of protecting the assets of the business you have worked so hard to build.
Effective asset protection can be as simple as restructuring your existing business operations to separate the valuable assets of your business, such as machinery, plant and equipment, and intellectual property, from the operational risk of the business. Unfortunately, most companies only think about asset protection when their business is at risk of entering insolvency or if they are being pursued by creditors. By this time, it’s usually too late.
It is important to have an experienced corporate lawyer by your side who knows how to put the right ownership structures in place before you acquire or add value to your business assets to ensure those assets are protected in the event of insolvency or litigation.
