Protect Your Assets Before Financial Storms Hit

Business owners, real estate investors and others who have substantial real estate holdings are wise to take precautionary measures to protect those assets in the event they file a business or personal bankruptcy, are subjected to foreclosure deficiencies, creditors, judgments or other lawsuits.

At Kaplan and Associates, Ltd., in Chicago, Illinois, our experienced lawyers work to protect the maximum amount of your business and personal assets from creditors. Asset protection is primarily thinking ahead. Planning must be done before filing for bankruptcy or before a claim or liability arises. Transferring assets after the fact may be deemed fraudulent transfer.

Planning Before Hard Times Hit

We work with clients at the first hint of financial stress or even earlier. If necessary, we collaborate with business and estate planning attorneys, asset protection specialists and other financial planning professionals to develop a comprehensive strategy that provides full protection.

The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 substantially limited exemptions. That and other new provisions in the Bankruptcy Code make asset protection a challenging proposition. Our thorough knowledge of bankruptcy law allows us to maximize the asset protections we put in place for our clients.

We invite you to contact us to schedule a free consultation. We can answer your questions about asset protection and recommend steps that you should take sooner rather than later.

We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.
