The Texas Series LLC Turns 10: A Series of Remaining Questions and Updates on the New Uniform Protected Series Act and Changes in Delaware (Aug 2019)

The Texas Series LLC is a great tool for specific situations, but practitioners should be wary of the continuing distinction between an entity and its series. A brief examination of remaining questions and issues practitioners should consider before using a series in Texas and how the series interacts with other areas of law. A Uniform Protected Series Act is making its way through the states and seeks to resolve several of the supposed weaknesses in series law. A brief examination of how Texas compares to the new model code and what practitioners may want to know as more states adopt it. Delaware now allows for the creation of a "registered series." An update for practitioners and a brief examination of whether this might be a solution for open questions in Texas.
