    Question Are my shares safe?

    Hi there,

    I'd like to know the following:
    If Company A is being sued by Company B for breach of contract and Company A looses, can Company B go after the shares that Company A owns in another company in order to receive it's full restitution?

    Thanks.
    Lauren

    Yes I would think so. They could go as far as liquidating all the assets of company A and that would include their share investments.

    Unless you spring all your shares into a trust and claim you own nothing.
