  • Individual Retirement Accounts, 401(k)s, and Pension Plans;
  • Cash, Checking, Savings, and Mutual Fund Savings;
  • Life Insurance

These are a few assets among many assets that people want to protect.  Owning a business or professional practice such as a physician, dentists, chiropractor, attorney, and/or any other professional has tremendous risks. Lawsuits against a business is one of the greatest threats against one’s wealth.

Asset protection empowers people to protect their assets against aggressive creditors and predatory lawsuits.  Often lawsuits are filed by aggressive contingency lawyers after money.  People wonder why they should be concerned about legitimate creditor or lawsuit concerns.  Unfortunately, many lawsuits are not legitimate and/or good wishes do not settle lawsuits.  Asset protection is not a replacement for proper liability and umbrella insurance.  Asset protection is a supplement to proper insurance planning.

  • Realtors, developers, and builders;
  • Physicians, OB-GYNs, Surgeons, and other medical doctors;

Yorkville, Oswego, and Plano Small Business Asset Protection Attorneys in Kendall County

Sean Robertson and Gateville Law Firm work with small business owners, family business owners, and independent contractors and owners to protect their wealth.  Simply put, Sean Robertson devises a defensive plan against the threats of creditors.  Asset protection is similar to virus protection with a computer.

Like virus protection, an asset protection attorney knows how a creditor and lawsuit would jeopardize a person or family’s wealth accumulation and retirement plans.  Often, business owners hear that setting up an LLC or Corporation is sufficient to protect one’s assets from business creditor concerns.

Unfortunately, small business owners and family business owners face personal liability concerns as a result of their business endeavors.  This conflict creates uncertainty and pain for family-business owners because their financial wealth is greatly concerned with the family business.

Yorkville, Kendall County and Oswego Real Estate Asset Protection Legal Services

A significant portion of many couple’s wealth and concern are real estate holdings such as property and rental property.  Landlord evictions and slip and fall concerns threaten one’s real estate interests if real estate is not properly titled.

Often, Sean Robertson and Gateville Law Firm see jointly owed real estate in husband and wife’s names, which is a big mistake.  One foreclosure lawsuit or lawsuit could threaten all of your real estate interests.  A judgment attaches to all real estate property in your personal or jointly owned name.

A well-positioned asset protection plan will place your LLC and real estate interests beyond the threats of your creditors.  This well-positioned estate planning and real estate asset protection plan provides peace of mind and certainty.

Sean Robertson and Gateville Law Firm are real estate, business, and asset protection attorneys for real estate investors, landlords, and real estate owners.  At Gateville Law Firm, Sean Robertson counsels and advises real estate owners on their business and financial rights and responsibilities.

A well-positioned LLC creates a barrier between your real estate assets and your personal assets.  Creditors understand that most business owners do not own their assets in their business name except for real estate.  A creditor or attorney is more likely to initiate a lawsuit if they believe that you own multiple real estate holdings especially if one has significant equity in one of their many properties.
