The mission of the Asset Protection Committee of the Real Property, Probate and Trust Law ("RPPTL") Section of The Florida Bar is to consider, develop, debate, and promote asset preservation relevant to Floridians. The committee both develops its own asset protection legislative proposals and vets those of others. It also serves as a watchdog against persistent efforts to erode Florida's asset protection attributes.
We have Committee meetings at each RPPTL Executive Council Meeting. Check the schedule on the RPPTL website for future meetings.
Even if you are not a Committee member, come and visit our next Committee meeting. We'll discuss recent asset protection cases, any legislative topics and try to get a handle on how better to mix estate planning and asset protection. Hope to see you there!
If you are interested in becoming a Committee member, please contact any of the Chairs.

OUR NEXT MEETING WILL BE:
Thursday, November 7, 2019
9:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDT
JW Marriott Marquis Hotel
Meeting Room: Metropolitan Ballroom 1
The agenda is full, here are some highlights:
-Brooke Eisensmith will provide us with a traditional caselaw update;
-Rick Gans will be reporting on updates to the Tenants by the Entirety Trust proposal. We are nearing a final draft of the proposal and your input at this stage is critical. Depending on how this meeting goes, we may have a white paper and proposed statute for the committee to vote on at the next meeting in January; and
-We will have a presentation from Ronald Neiwirth, who was the attorney for debtor Joseph Rensin in the recent Mehdipour v. Rensin case out of the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida. Rensin is a very interesting case in the asset protection world that we have discussed at our past 2 meetings. We are fortunate that Ron will join us to provide background on the case, his perspective, and answer questions we may have. Ron’s materials, including the Rensin opinion, are included in the agenda.
Thank you for your support of this committee!
We hope to see you at the meeting!
