Series LLCs, if structured properly, can provide significant liability and asset protections. They have been called the next generation of pass-through entities and are only gaining in popularity and use as states continue to authorize them. However, the lack of state uniformity in the treatment and acceptance of series LLCs has lead more conservative attorneys, advisors, and clients to avoid them due to concerns about the uncertainties and potential risks.
