Why not just use forms found in a bookstore or on the internet?
Forms and kits for formation of corporations, partnerships and LLC abound. Beware, however, that there is no such thing as a standard form. These forms may provide a basic guide for the critical and technical components of by-laws, partnership agreements, or operating agreements and may help identify issues that need to be considered by the parties, their terms may not be what the parties want and may not even apply to a specific business. Warning – if you use the forms “as-is’ and without the advice of an attorney, your agreement may not be what you think it is or want it to be. If you make your own changes to the forms without the advice of an attorney, your changes may not be valid or enforceable.
Failure to understand the terms of the governing document is a common cause of internal company disputes and conflicts. These disputes can hinder the operation of the business and even lead to failure of the business. While conflict between partners or members may frequently have positive outcomes, having governing documents that are clear and comprehensive is the first line of defense to prevention of destructive results. As the old saying goes, “good fences make good neighbors.” And remember that these governing agreements will be the critical documents in the event of litigation between the partners or members as well as upon termination of the business.
