Nevis LLC For Professionals

Interest in the Nevis LLC is increasing. I received an email from a physician who lives and is licensed in Florida. He wanted to know if he could establish a medical business through a Nevis LLC. Under Florida statute, any licensed professional business has to be designated as a professional corporation (a PA) or a professional limited liability company (PC or PL). Nevis has no statute permitting a professional LLC. Even if it did, I suspect Florida law requires that the PA or PL be Florida entities. Nevis LLCs have limits, and this is one of them. I do not think they are appropriate for a professional practice.
