Utah LLC Operating Agreements (2)

A Utah LLC operating agreement is a legal document that outlines the relationships between owners, their rights and duties, and the conduct of the business of a limited liability company (LLC) in Utah. The agreement is not required to do business in Utah; however, it is highly advisable because it can resolve disputes and protect owners from lawsuits brought against the company. Every owner should keep a signed copy on file.
