Operating Agreement (Basic)


You've got or are forming a multi-member LLC, and now you need an Operating Agreement.

The Basic Operating Agreement is designed to enable your new or perhaps part-time small business to operate effectively.  It will cover the basic operating aspects of your LLC, similar to by-laws for a corporate entity.  It will not cover exit plans, buy-sell options, or inheritance issues.

When your business grows to the point at which your owners and investors are making money, then you'll want to protect that investment -- for yourself and your family -- with a comprehensive agreement that will cover the basics, but will also cover the unavoidable day when the business ownership changes -- through retirement, disability, divorce, bankruptcy, death, or as the result of unfortunate personal circumstances or a serious disagreement among the owners over the direction of the business.

With the Basic Agreement you'll receive a thirty-minute telephone conference with Tom, necessary follow up email communications, and an appropriate Operating Agreement.

With the Comprehensive Agreement, you'll receive up to three 90-minute in person or telephone meetings with all owners to discuss the various aspects of the agreement; unlimited necessary email follow up communications; and a final one-hour meeting or conference call to discuss the final draft and answer all of the questions of the business owners.

Here's how it works:

We have to clear any conflicts. Tom must not have a conflict of interest with you, your business, your partners, or your families.

You will need to pay in advance with a check, credit card, or Pay Pal payment.  


Your conversations with Tom will be confidential and protected by the attorney-client privilege.


This rate does not include revisions once Tom submits the final draft, which will be billed at Tom's regular Hourly Rate.
