A limited liability company has members and membership interests. Yes, you can purchase 99% of the interest in the LLC - but if you are leaving one percent- is that for the old owner- so they would be one percent equity owner? This sounds like a structure of membership issue. It may be...View More
The lawsuit is coming from a loan company that has acquired a lawyer for representation. I think I got the term "Consent Judgement" correct. With that being said, since the judgement was approved by the courts, is it still necessary for me to go to court?
It is probably an Agreed Judgment. I recommend you still go to Court to get the agreed money Judgment entered. Sometimes bad things happen, and it is difficult to rectify them. That creditor's attorney might forget about your agreement and enter the full ad damnum, plus attorney fees...View More
To determine whether your fishing team for junior high and high school students qualifies for an Exempt School Organization status, you will need to review the requirements set forth by the IRS for educational organizations. This typically involves the organization being associated with an...View More
If the LLC is dissolved, then it has no legal matters. Members receive both assets and liabilities, and have legal proceedings against them personally. Sometimes it may be prudent to reinstate the LLC without others knowing. That member needs an attorney.
If the other party to the lease contract accepts that name as a signature, then it supposedly becomes a contract. But I would never advise anyone to execute a contract in that function. It may be unenforceable. Usually a signature would be ...John Doe d/b/a Doe Services...
I have a LLC in which I’m the majority member. My partner did a hard money loan without my permission to purchase a property and the property ended in foreclosure. The hard money lender stated that there is still 25k to fulfill the lender and he will put a lien on the company. What can I do?
Does the LLC have an Operating Agreement, By-Laws, etc.? If so, then it must be read carefully to see how property of the LLC can be encumbered or money borrowed. If not, probably only the managing member had the power to borrow for the LLC. Lender must get a Judgment first before having a...View More
If there is a n Operating Agreement then look at that for any controlling terms. More than likely the Managing Member simply designates new members. A new owner would need to notify the State Secretary of State of their new manager status. But it is also dependent on what State the LLC is...View More
I was having a conversation with some coworkers about our bosses. The convo was heated, and all the employees were upset.

Video or audio taping of a person without their knowledge or consent can be "wiretapping," and it is illegal in most states. The issue is are there any warning signs at the workplace that advise you there is taping or are security cameras in place? If so, you have been provided warning....View More

We have 2 LLCs that have partial shared ownership, 2 people are owners in both, 2 more are owners in just one. We are hoping to have an S Corp that is owned by the 2 that own both to employ everyone that currently works in the LLCs to consolidate and simplify things for employees and compliance.... View More
You could set up an entity to provide employees to both and then be reimbursed by both entities for the employees. Or the employees could be employed by one entity and when they work for the other - the other entity reimburses the first entity for the time of the employees.
It's difficult to give a definitive answer without knowing more details about your business and the products you plan to sell, but in general, using "Black Label" as a company name may be problematic because it's a common term that is used by many companies in various...View More
Depends on the debt. Are they personally obligated? Is the business just in debt? Or does it have a positive fair market value? Typically, without an operating agreement, when a member quits the LLC pays fair market under TCA 48-249-505. But there are other considerations as well. Consult counsel...View More
Someone fraudulently cashed a check I sent to pay my trash bill. The trash company never received it, so they still say I owe the bill. Who is responsible for getting the money - the bank, or the trash company?
There's not so much a list but various items you may want to look at - for example, codes and zoning. Make sure where you open up shop, you are permitted to operate. Then you'd want to check the environmental laws on disposal of tires and fluids. And then other statutes like the consumer...View More

Your post indicates that you are the only member of the LLC and from this I am assuming all of the online content is owned by either you or the LLC. You don't indicate the agreement with this other person - and you likely should discuss this with a lawyer rather than creating another post. -...View More

They sent someone to pick us up and told me to leave my key in the car and it would be towed within the hour. It sat on the side of the road for 7 days and it was vandalized and it's totaled. The dealership said my insurance has to do the claim bx they aren't responsible for it . Is that right?
