Trusts and Wealth Protection

Trusts and Wealth Protection

Our business clients often wish to set up a corporate structure to operate their company that protects them from the risks related to its commercial activities.  Some rely on management companies to protect their assets and the revenue stream generated by the company. This being said, few people question themselves as to the opportunity of setting up a protective structure for their personal liability, whether arising from legislation or an agreement concluded with a partner, a spouse or another party. We deem it important to raise our clients’ awareness about such an opportunity and offer them structures that are tailor-made to their reality, in particular through asset protection trusts.

Such a trust is endowed with unique legal and fiscal features that make of it an unparalleled asset holding structure. We provide the necessary counsel to set up trusts for various purposes, for instance to defer taxes upon death, to split revenues, to multiply capital gain deductions or to transfer a company to a new generation of owners. You will find within our firm recognized experts in drawing up inter vivos or testamentary trust deeds and in setting up simple or complex structures involving such trusts.
