“Florida’s New LLC Act – What You Need to Know to Prepare” on Wednesday, Sept. 24

Florida’s Revised LLC Act

New Changes: What you need to know to prepare for 2015

Join us for an insightful discussion of the key changes in Florida’s new limited liability act, 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 will come away with a better understanding of the changes they need to address in amendments to their operating agreements before the new Act becomes effective for all LLCs in 2015. We’ll expose seminar attendees to new concepts that they will need to be aware of when advising clients.  In addition, we’ll address 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.
