Resolved Question:

I obtained a final judgment against a defendant. He entered a lease in his personal name and used it to run a psychiatric practice under a name like "xxxxxx behavioral center'.<br /><br /> He operates as a sole trader and owns a couple of Inc's in Florida.<br /><br />My judgment is against him personally not the businesses.    <br /><br />Can I register liens and seek to seize cash and assets from his businesses or just go for the shares in the business etc?<br /><br />

You can only get the assets he has in his own name, not just solely in the business.

Linda Roch :

If you want business assets, you would need to sue the business.

However, you can get his other assets as well, such as any bank accounts, shares, vehicles, real estate that he has in his name.

Linda Roch :

The business probably doesn't have a lot of assets that are not also in his name.

But I can go for the shares in the practices - these are his assets too.

You can but if it's a sole proprietership or if it's not incorporated, he doesn't really have shares and then you can probably just try to attach to anything he has.
