Every business venture involves risk, and failure to manage that risk effectively can irreparably harm a company that might otherwise have been a smashing success. At Garcia & Gurney, A Law Corporation, we’re dedicated to helping our clients overcome every impediment to success. Our attorneys understand the full range of liability issues that confront business in California, and can design asset protection strategies to fit your company’s needs. By employing a combination of corporate structuring and insurance planning, we can help you minimize your exposure.
Potential plaintiffs and their attorneys tend to view corporate entities as deep pockets to target for litigation. To discourage lawsuits and minimize potential payouts, you must put as many of your corporate assets as possible out of reach of a court judgment. Our attorneys can show you how to structure your corporate holdings to limit a plaintiff’s reach. This is especially important for entrepreneurs operating as an S-Corp, LLC or DBA, who may not have given their personal assets as much protection as corporate law provides.
The second layer of protection for any company is liability insurance. Garcia & Gurney, A Law Corporation reviews policies and assesses the adequacy of coverage for your particular business. In Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, the major areas of liability are:
How much insurance to carry in which areas depends upon the nature of your business. Remember that judgments in excess of your insurance limits can result in the seizure of company—and even personal—assets. Be sure to consult an experienced business attorney to put an appropriate asset-protection plan in place.
