Pennsylvania Multi-Member LLC Operating Agreement Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Pennsylvania multi-member LLC operating agreement is a legal document that will be used specifically by companies that have more than one (1) member. The document will assist in guiding the members through the establishment of company procedures and policies, member listings, member duties, and responsibilities among other important aspects of the entity.

The document is not one that is required in order for the business to operate inside the state of PA. However, without the implementation of the document, the members’ personal assets would likely become vulnerable to liquidation if, in fact, the entity is presented with any type of litigation or business failure that would require legal liability to claimants and/or creditors. By completing this document, although the company would remain liable, the members’ assets would remain protected, as, this document will provide a clear separation between the members and the entity.

The document should be carefully examined by all member to ensure that all members understand the language. If the members aren’t certain they fully understand the information contained within the document, they may consider the assistance of legal counsel.
