Do I need a lawyer to establish an LLC in Florida? The answer to that is no.
You can go on the Secretary State’s website and it’s very easy to establish an LLC. However, the problem with that is once that you establish it, who is the owner of this LLC, what you need to go along with your LLC is what they call an operating agreement, which sets forth who the members are and their particular percentage interest. It’s analogous to having a corporation and you don’t have any shareholders, so who owns the corporation? So it’s easy enough to set one up. However, who owns it once you have it established, who are the members, and so that’s where you do need a lawyer to set up an operating agreement designating who are the members, which is the membership interest in the LLC.
So if you would like me to set up an LLC or prepare an operating agreement for you, give me a call at (727) 847-2288. Thank you.
