Greenwich partner Lorraine Slavin was quoted in an article, "Property Rounds: An 'inexpensive insurance policy' for transactions," published by the Greenwich Time. In the wake of increased internet privacy concerns and the new federal tax plan, the article focuses on the rise of using LLCs in real estate transactions. "If you do it right, no one can find out who's behind it," Slavin told Greenwich Time. "In a world where it's harder and harder to remain private, I've seen a huge increase in the use of LLCs, especially in the last 10 years," she said. Further, Slavin commented "Most of my clients in high-end residential real estate use LLCs for their purchases," adding her clients can get creative with their LLC filing, sometimes using combinations of their pets' or children's names.
