We will go over in-state and out-of-state options, while answering some frequently asked questions and providing tips for how you can get the help you need from your paid professionals.

Sometimes these reasons are obvious, such as cost. Ohio investors may want to form out-of-state is to take advantage of the stronger asset protection laws in other states or to make use of certain types of trusts not allowed by Ohio law. To help you understand your option, below we will compare the Ohio Traditional LLC with its counterparts from other states with forgiving LLC laws for investors.
Although Ohio is a great state for forming a Traditional LLC, we recommend the Series LLC for asset protection. There’s a danger to “pooling” multiple assets into one Ohio LLC. If that LLC is ever sued, everything in it is vulnerable to seizure.
