An Alternative to the Limited Liability Company for Serious Investors:

Corporate Law has a habit of forming in Delaware and trickling down to the other 49 states. In 1996, Delaware established the Series LLC as an alternative to a singular corporate entity. Texas followed suit in 2009 and codified the protections and liabilities of the Series LLC under TBOC 101.602.

So what does this mean for investors? Investors now have the option of creating one "parent LLC" with a series of LLCs connected to its parent LLC. A Series LLC requires one formation document through the Secretary of State and only one Company Agreement.

To explain its use in another way, if I want to buy multiple investment properties, and I intend to own each in a separate LLC, then I could save a significant amount of time and money by creating a Series LLC. After creating the initial LLC and Company Agreement, I can add a series LLC for each property that I buy. Texas treats each series as a separate entity and thus, the assets of each series are considered separate and apart from its sibling series.

Protect your assets while creating LLCs in the most efficient method available. Ask us how to maintain separate entity status and how to avoid piercing the corporate veil.
