There should also be a provision on the vote needed to amend the company agreement (perhaps a vote of the executives and a certain percentage of members). However, a written agreement is usually used because it recalls the understanding and agreements between members, which provides invaluable protection to all parties involved in the event of future litigation or misunderstanding (or the unfortunate possibility of litigation). A statement that the agreement complies with your state`s LLC laws and that the company will be created once the official LLC documents have been filed with the state. Every LLC should have an operating agreement, but since there is usually no filing requirement for that document, many companies use a cookie-cutter contract and only fill in the blanks. This is one of the riskiest things you can do, especially if your LLC has more than one owner.
