  3. LLCs as "shell companies" where I am the only member of an LLC that in turn is the only member of another LLC doing the business

    Disclaimer: The materials provided below are informational and should not be relied upon as legal advice. Attorney Shultz provides you an excellent response. Having multiple layers of LLCs does not necessarily protect your assets, or your privacy, for that matter. If there is certain pending liability, and you intend to transfer assets to an LLC, that may also constitute a fraudulent transfer, so you will be wise to consult an attorney to assist you with these matters.
