New LLC Act Law Changes: What you need to know to prepare for 2015

Dean Mead attorneys Steve Looney and Jane Callahan presented some of the key changes in Florida’s new limited liability act on September 24, 2014, including:

  • Changes to the non-waivable default rules
  • Modifications to management options
  • Introduction of a new ability to file statements of authority with the State

Business owners who attended the seminar left with a better understanding of the changes they will need to address in amendments to their operating agreements before the new Act becomes effective for all LLCs in 2015. In addition, they addressed the new Florida law authorizing “benefit corporations”, also known as “B Corporations”. B Corporations should be attractive to “social entrepreneurs” who are looking for their company to benefit both its shareholders and specific social causes.
