This handbook covers the ways in which a client’s financial property can be preserved.

Also covered are drafting considerations for trusts; business assets (with discussions on protecting individuals from business liabilities and protecting businesses from individual liabilities); asset protection during estate and trust administration; and offshore trusts. Discussions on perpetuities provisions, powers of appointment, trustee succession considerations, and trustee powers are also included.
