The Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a legal entity that combines the advantages of a partnership and a corporation. However, in contrast to members of a partnership, those of a LLC normally are not liable for business debts, and unlike a corporation, they avoid ‘double taxation’ – taxation of profits of the business and of personal income of owners.
However, disputes often ensue among owners of LLCs. Operating agreements address member’s rights, responsibilities, and any remedies. But, in their absence, members are governed by Uniform Limited Liability Company Acts of states. Alternative dispute resolution may be a good option to resolve certain disputes; as is mediation or arbitration. However and ideally, such dispute resolution methods should be stipulated and specifically addressed in an operating agreement.
LLC litigation is among the most complex and can have such far reaching consequences. Often, these cases require highly skilled attorneys undertaking assessment of business valuations, forensic accounting, and extensive document discovery and depositions. Therefore, it is important that owners have a well-drafted operating agreement and shareholder’s agreements for corporations and partnership agreements for partnerships.
In this two hour, live webcast, a panel of key thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an overview of the latest trends and Best Practices in Dealing with Disputes and Litigation in a Limited Liability Company. Speakers will also offer in-depth discussions of risk and compliance issues surrounding this topic.
