Single Member LLCs in Nevada and Asset Protection for Estate Planning
A recent case in Florida (Olmstead v. FTC, June 2010) has called into question the efficacy of single member LLCs as asset protection devices. Many commentators have taken the position that the single member LLC is worthless for asset protection as a result of this case.
Scott Gunderson will examine the case in detail and take a look at how a similar case might play out in NV using NV LLC law.
