In the last post I talked about why my subpoena to a formation agent (this is not an official term like registered agent and is a general way to refer to the companies which will set up a business for you by carrying out the requisite filings) contained the requests it did.
The previous post discussed the “secrecy” which a limited liability company (LLC) enjoys. I included a subpoena to a third-party company that sets up LLCs for people. That subpoena requested all of the contact information possessed by the third-party formation agent.
Secrecy is a relative concept. If you think a limited liability companies (LLC) will protect you from a vindictive spouse, cheated business partner or Uncle Sam, you’re mistaken.
