ASSET PROTECTION FOR BUSINESS OWNERS
Asset Protection for Business Owners
By using well-thought-out asset protection strategies, business owners in Alabama may protect their assets from loss. What type of loss might a business owner face? Both business and personal assets may be vulnerable to seizure due to lawsuits, creditors, or bankruptcies.
Some business entities in Alabama offer greater protection than others. Limited liability companies and corporations offer great risk management

Protection Against Lawsuits
One way to safeguard your assets is to give
Cayman Accounts – Offshore asset protection trusts.
Another way to protect assets is through an offshore asset protection trust or irrevocable domestic asset protection trust (DAPT). Offshore asset protection trusts are set up in countries that are friendly to trust makers and unfriendly to foreign creditors.
Alabama does not allow the use of DAPTs. While they can be set up in a state that does allow DAPTs, there’s just no guarantee at this time that an Alabama resident’s assets would truly be protected.
One Important Thing to Remember.
Transferring assets under certain circumstances can be considered fraudulent transfers. Consult with an attorney before attempting to safeguard any assets.
