# 011901Asset Protection - State of the Art
From the underlying substantive law to practical aspects of asset protection planning (i.e., what works and what does not), this program will teach you everything you need to know about protecting your assets from plaintiffs and creditors. We'll cover specific planning strategies and solutions, including planning with community property, business entities and domestic and foreign trusts. Specific emphasis will be placed on protecting assets in a troubled economy, including protection from lenders and landlords holding personal guarantees.
You'll learn various ways, from the very simply to the very sophisticated, to protect specific assets common to all clients: houses, bank and brokerage accounts, rental real estate, businesses and professional practices and retirement plans.
Course materials will serve as a treatise on asset protection as well as an exhaustive reference source for many of your planning needs and will outline and diagram the discussed planning techniques and structures. The instructor will share many real life case histories and anecdotes that will readily illustrate the effectiveness of various structures.
