Title says it all.
I am curious about whether properties (physical as well as "virtual estates" i.e. domain-names) in the name of one's lawyer would be a viable alternative to "proxy services" who, for all intents and purposes, become owners of that which is in their name. My thinking is that a lawyer, unlike a private company, is being paid to do as you ask, to keep one's holdings confidential. I am not talking about doing so to shield against breaking the law, just to maintain some semblance of privacy in the era of repealed civil liberties.
Edit: I am fine with making someone else the legal owner and/or operator, I would trust a lawyer that I know much more than online companies who've been known to sell such information even without any legal pressure.
