Fairfield County Asset Protection Lawyers

Fairfield County Tax Liabilities Attorneys

Attorneys for Estate Planning and Protecting Business Interests in Metro New York

The phrase "estate planning" can be misleading. When you think about estate planning, there is a good chance that you think about creating documents such as wills and trusts designed to transfer a person's property to his or her loved ones when the person dies. While the transfer of assets is certainly an important part of estate planning, there is much more to this area of the law, especially if you own a business, real estate, or complex investments.

At Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC, our lawyers have more than 65 years of combined legal experience, and we understand the importance of asset protection in any comprehensive estate plan. We are equipped to help you develop strategies that will safeguard your estate against unnecessary taxes and other possible liabilities.

Business Asset Protection

If you own and operate a closely held business or a private professional practice, your business assets and your own personal holdings are subject to a variety of risks. Lawsuits and claims against you or your company could place your personal assets in jeopardy. Such claims could even be filed against your estate in some cases. At our firm, we know that the key to protecting your business interests and your associated assets is preparation. We will work with you in creating customized plans for keeping your business safe for many years to come. As appropriate, we can also help you create succession plans that will allow you to pass on control of your company to the next generation safely and efficiently.

Tax Liabilities and Creditor Concerns

Our knowledgeable team will help you legally protect your holdings, interests, and assets from creditors and adverse judgments. We can also develop comprehensive strategies that work within the law to minimize your tax obligations both during your lifetime and while your estate is being distributed to your heirs.
