Single member LLC’s in Florida do not protect their member from liability.

As the southwest Florida area begins preparing for “season,” I would like to take this time to remind anyone starting a new business that single member limited liability companies do not provide their member with any protection from liability. While most states do not make a distinction between single and multi-member LLC’s for purposes of liability, the Florida Supreme Court held in a case out of Miami that corporate creditors can “pierce the veil” of a single member limited liability company and collect from the member.

That said, there are a number of ways to insure that you do receive the liability protection you desire–most of which, do not raise the cost of formation–when forming a new LLC or business. From adding another member to organizing under the laws of a different jurisdiction, we can help you obtain the asset protection and piece of mind that you desire.
