Royal Legal Solutions offers services for entities formed under our guidance, such as LLCs, (S)LLCs, and LPs, but can also assist established corporations in refining their existing compliance practices to ensure that you and your assets are not under threat if any of the above assets were overlooked in your previous plan.
Broadly speaking, our corporate compliance services help you keep your company’s practices in line with state and federal law. The main purpose of this service is to help prevent your company from incurring unnecessary fines and avoiding violations of law that could result in costly litigation. In addition to ensuring your company’s practices are on the up-and-up, effective corporate compliance will also help you detect any potential violations that may arise as you are running your business.
We also structure your corporate compliance strategy to allow you to take corrective action for potential future compliance issues. While none of us can predict the future (we’re lawyers, not psychics), we have found that a plan that contains all of the following essential features can provide excellent protection for your business.
The process begins from within, where we help you lay a framework of internal policies that will help you run your business efficiently and legally. Some organizations may need assistance with minor documents, such as Employee Codes of Conduct, while others will need airtight management agreements.
We make the leadership roles of all members clear from the outset. We perform a risk analysis early on that will reveal the potential weak spots in your existing operations, and where possible, anticipate any future risks and guide you in establishing policies that will minimize your risks.

The lawsuit prevention methods mentioned above combine with the Land Trust’s anonymity and versatility to secure your real estate investments. On its own, the Land Trust is not a surefire asset protection plan. However, when combined with an entity like a Series LLC, it is a powerful tool.
If someone is looking to steal your identity, they are really looking for your information. Public records of things like your real estate transactions, mortgage payments, and other investment information are a treasure trove for the identity thief. Land Trusts keep your name off of public records, making you a much harder target for would-be identity thieves. Fortunately for the smart investors who use Land Trusts, most criminals will move on to lower hanging fruit.
Have a mortgage or other type of loan for your investment property? Most loans contain a clause known as the “due on sale” clause. This means that you cannot sell the property without being forced to pay back the financing in full. This can create an issue when you choose to transfer your property into an LLC. Since most financial institutions do not like to lend directly to LLCs, clients who use them for asset protection can find themselves in a frustrating situation.
The good news is that a Land Trust can essentially solve this problem. You simply buy the property in your own name, which allows you to access any line of credit or loan you are personally eligible for, then transfer the property into the land trust. Your trust-owned property can then be placed inside of your Series LLC or other corporate structure.
When you use a Land Trust, you have options. In states that permit Tenancy-By-The-Entireties, married couples who own interests in a property can prevent a lawsuit against one spouse from affecting the other. It also can be beneficial in the event of a divorce in a community property state. Assets held in trusts have specific documents governing their sale and division.
We have experience in setting up the proper asset protection and making it easy for an investor to use. Our system simplifies management structure as much as possible, and we also use common sense to ensure your needs are met. For example, just one tip we give our clients is that you don’t need multiple bank accounts as long as you have accurate accounting records. For taxation, they should stay exactly how they are now while being reported on a Schedule E of your personal return (if you’re an individual/married partners) or a partnership return (if unmarried partners).
