LLCs, Partnerships and Unincorporated Entities Committee


Mission Statement

The mission of the LLC, Partnership and Unincorporated Entities Committee is to be the principal Business Law Section committee dealing with unincorporated business organizations. Through its activities, the Committee strives to afford its membership practical information on unincorporated business entities from both the narrow and the broad perspective. Narrowly, we spend significant time analyzing and comparing various forms of business entity laws, including being the author of the Revised Prototype LLC Act, and being active in the drafting of various unincorporated business entity uniform acts. We also support our membership through the drafting and release of numerous annotated transaction documents. Broadly, the Committee devotes its energies considering the interrelationship of unincorporated business entity law with numerous other areas of law in which there is interface including bankruptcy, federal and state tax, litigation, and the application of the Uniform Commercial Code.
