More About Asset Protection in South Carolina

Asset protection is like a backup plan that is used to shield your assets from potential lawsuits, liens, judgments, and fraud, and as a hedge against taxes. The strategies that are used in asset protection can benefit anyone from small business owners to lawyers, doctors, property owners, and more. 

Professionals in high-risk careers can be especially vulnerable to lawsuits such as malpractice suits. Others can be held liable in lawsuits from business partners or as corporate directors or owners. Property owners can be subject to liability from personal injuries suffered on your premises. Individuals can also face personal injury lawsuits based on traffic accidents. As the guarantor of a loan, you can additionally be held liable in a lawsuit. These can all lead to the loss of your assets.
