Business Planning with Series LLCs - 1 CLE hour


“Series LLCs” are a new and potentially powerful tool in business planning. They allow owners to isolate assets and (crucially) liabilities in various “Series,” or cells, within the “mothership” LLC.  This shields a particular Series’ assets from claims involving the assets of other Series’ assets under the LLC.  What makes the structure different is that the LLC and all of its Series will be considered a single entity for tax and non-tax purposes.  Management powers and distribution rights can be varied according to each Series, but in exchange for these and other benefits there are many limits and variations from the traditional LLC.  In addition, there are substantial UCC, bankruptcy, and title and general insurance issues.  This program will provide you with a real-world guide to understanding how Series LLCs are created, the circumstances in which they are best used, the drafting the underlying documents, and counseling clients about their use.
