LLC Meaning

A limited liability company (LLC), if formed correctly is a business entity that keeps its liabilities away from the personal owners. Colorado LLC laws also allow for flow through taxation instead of the double taxation seen in larger corporations.

There are certain types of companies, namely professional organizations (lawyers, doctors etc.) that cannot incorporate or form LLCs under Colorado business laws.

The definition of limited liability in LLC companies means that members and partners of the LLC are not personally liable for the debts of the business. However, owners must understand the parameters that allow such protection. This is one area where Watson & Associates’ Colorado limited liability company lawyers can help.

  • It is always better to form an LLC in Colorado instead of a sole proprietorship.
  • Despite having an LLC, failure to follow specific laws opens the door to personal liability.
  • Making sure that you have a sound Colorado LLC operating agreement can protect LLC members.

Colorado LLC Operating Agreement

The Colorado Secretary of State does not require you to file your LLC operating agreement when you incorporate. However, conducting business without a viable operating agreement can cause grief later or even lead to expensive litigation.

The operating agreement contains very important information that spells out the duties, responsibility and authority of each LLC partner.

When corporate disputes occur, a viable operating agreement can create substantive reasons to initial breach of  fiduciary duty actions against the LLC and other partners. Without a valid operating agreement, the ability to protect the company rights is more difficult.

At Watson & Associates, our Denver business attorneys help you to draft and analyze your operating agreement for soundness and viability under Colorado LLC laws.
