PETER MAHLER’S LATEST BLOG

By , December 5, 2017 10:06 am

As I think all of you know, I view Peter Mahler’s blog on business divorce to be among the best of all blawgs, and indispensable for LLC lawyers.  His latest post, under the link below, provides his reflections on the tenth anniversary of the launch of his blawg.  It’s fascinating in itself but also for people like me, who have our own specialized blawgs; and it will be fascinating for you if you are considering launching a blawg of your own.

Many clients of LLC lawyers own condos through LLCs; they either live in these condos or they rent them to third parties.  This post from Peter Mahler under the link below discusses cases addressing the issue of the right of condo owners to inspect and copy records of their condo associations.  As the former president of a condo association, this issue is of substantial interest to me, but it may also interest many other readers of this blog.

NEW TREATISE ON BUSINESS DIVORCE

By , January 10, 2017 12:36 pm

A business divorce is a break-up of a closely held LLC or other closely held business entity because of irreconcilable differences among the owners.  The post by Peter Mahler under the link below summarizes an outstanding new treatise on business divorce by three Delaware lawyers.  Drafting LLC operating agreements to prevent business divorces is among the most important functions of LLC lawyers in forming multi-member LLCs.  I intend to obtain a copy of the new treatise ASAP.  Should you?
