Asset Protection

{mds} law provides a comprehensive asset protection and estate planning service for clients.
 
We work closely with businesses and individuals to ensure protection of their assets in the event of unforseen events or to enable an orderly and unconstested transfer of ownership from one generation to the next.  
 
Asset protection measures need to be carefully considered and a plan customised to meet your particular needs.  The consequences of not doing so can lead to quite difficult and costly legal problems later on.
 
Our team has the experience and expertise to advise you on how to plan for your future and how to get the best from a trust or other structures.

  • Estate and trust administration.

  • Forgiveness of debt and gifting programmes.
