Florida’s LLC Law
LLCs seem to have become the entity of choice in Florida, due to their asset protection features, relatively informal structure, pass-through tax treatment, restrictions on transferability, limited rights of a transferee, opportunities for transfers to family members, valuation discounts, and generally greater flexibility as opposed to corporations and partnerships. There is a recent Florida Limited Liability Act whereby the news laws of Chapter 605 of the Florida Statutes replace those of the prior Chapter 608.
