For the grand state of Texas, we offer two (2) very effective and useful LLC Operating Agreements designed to organize and protect the member(s) of an entity and the entity itself. Offered is a Single Member LLC Operating Agreement and a Multi-Member LLC Operating Agreement. Both are very similar, differing only in the fact that one agreement is meant for companies with multiple owners while the other is meant for only single member entities. The operating agreements themselves are designed to put the members of an entity into a contract that states their ownership percentages and their roles in a company, to document the typical daily routine of an entity, to allow for the creation of bylaws within a company, to protect the member(s) of an LLC from financially damaging liability related to the entity itself, and to record the manager(s) and employee(s) role in the company. Overall, our Texas LLC Operating Agreements are extremely necessary for ensuring your company operates as smoothly as possible and the company and company owner are financially and legally protected. However, before one of our LLC Operating Agreements can be completed, an entity has to be filed and created with the Texas Secretary of State by utilizing an Articles of Organization form. Below we give you a step-by-step process for filing your new entity with the state of Texas.

How to File/Create an Entity:

Step 1: (Check Entity Name Availability)
