Florida LLCs: Are you ready for 2015?In the article, she covers:

  • Required operating agreement provisions that cannot be waived (existing provisions contrary to these are now considered unenforceable) – such as the LLC’s capacity to sue or be sued.
  • Rules that take effect if an existing operating agreement does not specifically address a matter – such as consent required to amend the operating agreement.
  • Other challenges – such as domesticating foreign entities as Florida LLCs.
