Limited Liability Companies and Limited Liability Partnerships

“A very good and comprehensive book.... Corporate lawyers should seriously consider reviewing Humphrey's text and adding it to their libraries or offices.”
New Jersey Lawyer Magazine

The limited liability company and limited liability partnership may be the most significant organizational developments in American business since the advent of the corporate tax. Find out why countless businesses have adopted these “super pass-through vehicles” to avoid taxation at the corporate level while retaining limited liability and whether you should too.

Limited Liability Companies and Limited Liability Partnerships explains why the LLC and LLP are taking the place of Subchapter S and Subchapter C for all but very large, publicly held companies. Beginning with “What a Nontax Lawyer Needs to Know” about partnership tax rules, it provides the reader with step-by-step explanations of how to create an LLC or LLP “from scratch.” You'll also find in-depth analysis of related ERISA provisions, the IRS's “check-the-box” regulations, tax, nontax, estate planning and accounting considerations, as well as federal and state statutory citations and tables.

The LLP and LLC have far-reaching implications for investors, professionals and most corporations, joint ventures and partnerships. This comprehensive treatment will help you position yourself and your clients to make the most of these organizational structures.
