Operating Agreements

An operating agreement is a set of documents which provides the rules and guidelines for the operation of a limited liability company.

 What is this?

Many states require an LLC to have an operating agreement, which contains information like the structure, management, rights, powers, and interests. The operating agreement helps to prove the business is separate from the person and is the most important part in maintaining legal protection. Most importantly, the operating agreement acts as just that, an agreement between members for the operation of the company.

Customizable options for everyone:

  1. Operating Agreements can be customized to meet your individual needs and business type
  2. LLC ownership can be assigned to individuals, another entity, or a living trust, depending on the best structure for your situation
  3. LLCs can be taxed as a partnership, C- or S-Corporation, or disregarded to the owner

“$2 million lawsuit reduced to $100,000 settlement

We set up a Nevada LLC for a client with significant savings. She was sued 3 years later for an environmental claim stemming from property she owned over 30 years before. Plaintiff wanted over $2 million in damages for the cleanup. After we disclosed that her assets were protected by a Nevada LLC and a HELOC on her residence Plaintiff accepted less than $100k in a settlement.

“Avoided $5.5 million judgement”

A bank wanted to pursue one of our clients for a deficiency judgement ($5.5 million) for commercial real estate he lost in foreclosure. Once the bank found out how we protected all of our clients remaining assets with LLCs and a Nevada holding LLC the bank’s attorney stated “we decline to seek a deficiency judgment given the complicated structure you have weaved for yourself”.

“$1 Million in personal liability avoided

Our client purchased property in a LLC and it was later discovered the soil beneath the property was contaminated. The state sued the LLC to clean up the land. Client walked away from the property without any personal liability. Without the LLC he would have been on the hook for over $1 million.
