When choosing the best asset protection option for you, there are a handful of questions you should ask, especially when choosing to hire an attorney.

Legal Representation

Are you engaging with a licensed attorney at a reputable law firm?
In the world of asset protection, it’s imperative to seek counsel solely from an attorney at a law firm. Only law firms and their staff can provide privileged legal advice, safeguarding your communications under attorney-client confidentiality. This privilege does not apply to attorneys who are not working at a law firm.

At Blake Harris Law, we are a law firm founded and managed by a licensed attorney. We’ll help you create a plan that fits your needs and guide you through the process. Click here to learn more about our managing attorney Blake Harris.

Track Record of Success

What is the practitioner’s success rate with offshore trusts?
Confidence in the efficacy of an offshore trust hinges on the practitioner’s established track record. At Blake Harris Law, as of the publishing of this article, every trust we have established has remained intact, reflecting our commitment to success and reliability.

Authentic Offshore Protection

Does the practitioner offer genuine offshore asset protection entities?
Beware of similar alternatives that may compromise your security. A trust which is not initially established offshore does not provide the same protection as a trust which is established offshore from the beginning.

At Blake Harris Law, we exclusively provide authentic offshore asset protection entities, ensuring comprehensive safeguarding from inception. We do not form domestic trusts or hybrid trusts, which lack the protection of an offshore trust.

International Partnerships

Does the practitioner collaborate with reputable international partners?
Establishing connections with reputable trustees and financial institutions worldwide is paramount in offshore asset protection. At Blake Harris Law, we collaborate with trusted trustees and distinguished financial institutions, capitalizing on their credibility and regulatory compliance in jurisdictions such as the Cook Islands and Switzerland.
