Asset protection planning is a growing concern for many clients—and not just for the ultra-wealthy. Here's why:
• Divorce rates in the U.S. over 50%;
• Clients concerned about bloodline protection;
• More lawsuits;
• Special concerns in “high risk” occupations
• Perceived “deep pockets” – the higher the wealth, the bigger the target.
