(a) A limited liability company is bound by the company agreement and may enforce it. 1. The company agreement shall apply to members, separate members, buyers and managers. The practical implications of this outcome are illustrated by a decision delivered yesterday in Delaware by Vice Chancellor J. Travis Laster at Seaport Village Ltd. v. Seaport Village Operating Company, LLC, et al.C.A. No. 8841-VCL (September 24, 2014). In this case, the question was whether an LLC could enforce a lawyer`s fees in its corporate agreement. The defendant`s only defense was that LLC had not signed the company agreement. Vice Chancellor Laster noted that Section 18-101(7) of the Delaware Limited Liability Company Act provides that “[a] limited liability company is bound by its limited liability partnership agreement, whether or not the limited liability company executes the limited liability company agreement.” New York requires the establishment of a written company agreement for all LLCs.
Several other states require LLCs to establish a written or oral company agreement in certain situations. For example, New Mexico does not need a company agreement; However, for a company agreement to be valid in the State, it must be in writing. Similarly, Alabama does not need a corporate agreement unless LLC has only one member. If California were applied (it wasn`t), I`d say this conclusion is both unnecessary and wrong. As noted above, the legal definition of a “company agreement” does not require agreement from LLC. The normal understanding of a “party” as opposed to a “third party” is someone who has reached an agreement. Historically, the term has been used in indentures that were contracts in which the text was copied twice and then separated by a dense cross-section. The party of the first part obtained the upper copy and the party of the second part the lower copy. (14) Remove the duty of loyalty provided for in subsection (b) of section 17704.09, but the company agreement may do the following: if a company agreement established under the previous law provides that the agreement of the members (that all members or a majority of the members) is necessary only for the acts expressly defined in the company agreement, the manager would probably be able, despite the standard rules of RULLCA, of 1999, 1994, 1994, 1994.
