How do you distinguish a good Operating Agreement from a bad Operating Agreement?



Was the Operating Agreement created specifically for you and your business?

Was the Operating Agreement created using the latest state and tax laws?

Does language support your intended tax status (i.e. Disregarded, Partnership, S-Corp or C-Corp)?

Are dissociating events (i.e. death, incapacity, voluntary withdrawal, etc) addressed?

Does the Operating Agreement specify buyout terms and valuation for dissociating events?

Are important issues addressed, including dispute resolution, tie-breaker, quorum, confidentiality, non-compete and devotion?

If you answered "no" to any of the above, you need the Couture Operating Agreement!
