Helping Family Partnerships throughout Chicago and Northern Suburbs

Family partnerships, including family limited partnerships (FLP) and family limited liability company (FLLCs), are business structures that are frequently used forestate planning purposes. By effectively using a family partnership, family businesses can eliminate or minimize the estate and gift tax liabilities that result when transferring assets to the next generation in a family.
