Credit(s) and Type: 2 | Technical Business
Speaker Name: Gary A. Forster and J. Brian Page

In this seminar, we provide the 2019 update for asset protection.  We discuss the latest in domestic and foreign asset protection trusts and protecting assets with LLCs.  Attendees learn techniques for strategically handling assets using LLCs, asset protection practices and misconceptions.  Discussed are the considerations for entity formation, choosing jurisdictions, and choice of governing law.  Attendees will also learn about potential issues and differing characteristics of foreign jurisdictions.

About the Speakers:

Gary Forster is the managing partner and co-founder of ForsterBoughman.  Gary’s practice includes domestic and international corporate law, asset protection, tax, and estate planning. Gary handles a wide variety of corporate and personal planning matters.

Gary spent the ?rst decade of his career structuring and closing some of the largest corporate transactions in the region.  The mergers and acquisitions Gary consummated range from the national consolidation of regional US construction and transportation interests to real estate investment trusts, hospitals and surgical centers.  Gary is one of the few attorneys in Central Florida with experience in cross-border corporate transactions, including a variety of industries ranging from intellectual property concerns to international distribution and manufacturing interests.

Gary’s corporate work, with some of the most prominent companies and entrepreneurs in Florida and abroad, led him to expand his practice ?fteen years ago.  Successful clients require substantial tax, estate and asset protection planning.  Gary recognized that certain wealthy clients require a single partner contact, familiar with both business law and tax planning and structuring.  Gary serves that purpose. Gary has designed and drafted hundreds of corporate documents and asset protection plans.


Brian Page practices in the areas of domestic and international estate planning, domestic and international tax planning, federal and state tax controversy, and probate and trust administration.

Brian has extensive experience developing sophisticated estate plans for wealthy individuals and families.  These plans are designed to reduce potential tax burdens within the context of each client’s overall estate-planning objectives.  To accomplish this task, Brian uses sophisticated planning vehicles — including specialized tax planning trusts, family-limited partnerships, limited liability companies, and private foundations — and tailors them to meet his clients' specific needs.  Brian also works with clients to create and implement effective estate plans that take advantage of the laws of foreign jurisdictions.  By utilizing this knowledge, clients may limit exposure to potential U.S. creditors, and when applicable, maximize or minimize, as the case may be, the effects of U.S. tax laws that are imposed upon U.S. residents, non-resident aliens, and non-resident family members that own U.S. assets.

Brian also advises clients on both domestic and international tax issues.  This includes planning for all federal tax issues that might arise for U.S. residents, non-resident aliens, green card holders, and their ownership interests in foreign trusts, corporations, or other entities.  It also encompasses the taxation of foreign trusts, pre-immigration tax planning for non-resident aliens, expatriation tax planning for US residents, the taxation of crypto-currency, and the analysis of federal income and transfer taxes on non-resident aliens, green card holders, and their families.
