Thanks to the fiscal cliff and the almost 100% certainty that tax rates for high income earners are about to soar, it is highly likely that the use of structured legal fees, also referred to as structured attorney fees, is going to increase dramatically.
The ability of trial lawyers to use standard structured settlement funding vehicles, such as fixed annuity contracts, to design at settlement guaranteed, predictable cash flows that move taxable income from one tax year into future tax years, is a technique that is going to explode in use according to Mark Wahlstrom, President of Wahlstrom & Associates.
