Asset Protection Trusts (APT) are specifically designed to guard against the claims of future creditors. Developed in response to the alarming rise in lawsuits over the last decade, they shield the Settlor and potential beneficiaries from future claims against trust assets.

APT's are most commonly used by self-employed professionals and successful entrepreneurs. In fact, anyone who runs the risk of becoming a defendant in a frivolous or vexatious lawsuit can benefit.

Many clients use a trust in conjunction with an offshore corporation. In addition to adding a layer of confidentiality, control, and versatility to the overall financial strategy, this allows clients to use the most advantageous trust and corporate legislation available to meet their own particular needs.
