Louisiana Multi-Member LLC Operating Agreement Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Louisiana multi-member LLC operating agreement is a legal document that is available for managing members, of a company with more than one member, to use to establish the policies, regulations, and procedures of a company. Louisiana doesn’t require that any business establish the document so that they may do business in the state, however, it is recommended that all companies, regardless of size, complete and file the form.

The reason for this recommendation is that the mere completion and filing of the form will provide protections to the member’s financial assets and personal property that would not otherwise be available. Should the entity ever have to face any type of litigation or failure, without the document in place, would become personally liable for the debts of the company. The document will protect the members and will also provide tax benefits to the company, that would not be available without the document.
