The first assignment is to prepare answers to our asset protection interview form.  This gives us additional team to assess your risks and vulnerabilities.  Second, we coordinate asset protection with your LLC and business plans including estate plans.  Third, we want to know whether you have an estate plan.  If you have an estate plan, we want to protect your family from conflicts that naturally arise in estate planning scenarios.  The fourth factor is evaluating your family including factories such as liability risks of each spouse and their employment type and income.  These factors give us information how a creditor would attack your family, real estate business, or business enterprise.  The fifth factor is a meeting with Sean Robertson to assess your concerns, liability risks, and develop an asset protection strategy.
