Get Ready for the LL"Sea" Change- Navigating the New Florida Revised LLC Act
For the first time since originally enacted, Florida has a completely new and thoroughly revised LLC Act. The New Act was enacted by the Florida Legislature on May 3, 2013, and signed into law by the Governor on June 14, 2013. The new LLC Act becomes effective January 1, 2014 for all limited liability companies formed on or after that date, and any previously existing LLCs which elect to be governed by the new Act. All LLCs doing business in Florida become subject to the New Act on January 1, 2015. The New Act was created by a Drafting Committee of The Florida Bar, based principally on the Revised Uniform Limited Liability Company Act of 2006 as amended 2011 ("RULLCA"), but with many deviations from RULLCA. The New Act creates entirely new chapter 605 effective January 1, 2014, and repeals existing chapter 608 effective January 1, 2015 . There are numerous modernization changes in the New Act which should make Florida LLCs more attractive and user-friendly. This Program will examine the most significant aspects of the New Act, including the major changes from Existing Law. All of the speakers were instrumental members of the Drafting Committee which created the New Act. The Program will be moderated by the Chairman of the Drafting Committee, and the panel includes the Reporter for the Drafting Committee, the Bureau Chief of the Corporations Division of the Department of State who worked extensively as part of the Drafting Committee, the Recording Secretary for the Drafting Committee, and members of the Executive Committee which prepared the White Paper explaining the Act for the Florida Legislature.
