This CLE course will provide corporate counsel with a review of the advantages and disadvantages of forming LLCs under the Delaware Limited Liability Company Act (DLLC Act) versus other statutes. The panel will explain the critical issues for counsel in planning, negotiating and drafting LLC agreements under the DLLC Act.


The Delaware LLC Act is the preeminent LLC Act in the U.S. and arguably the most flexible. The body of Delaware LLC case law is extensive and evolving, and the Delaware courts lead the country in deciding business disputes. For these and other reasons, the DLLC Act is the statute of choice when forming LLCs.

However, forming an LLC under the Act is not for the unprepared. It is a lengthy and complex LLC statute, presenting many pitfalls for attorneys. Becoming familiar with the terms of the Act and the critical LLC issues not addressed by its terms is vital.

Listen as our authoritative panel of Delaware attorneys discusses the advantages of Delaware LLC formation and best practices for drafting LLC agreements under the DLLC Act.



  1. Anatomy of an LLC agreement
  2. Choosing between the DLLC Act and other LLC Acts when forming LLCs
  3. Taking advantage of the flexibility of the DLLC Act in forming Delaware LLCs
  4. Avoiding pitfalls in forming Delaware LLCs


The panel will review these and other key issues:

  • What main factors to consider in choosing between formation under the DLLC Act versus non-Delaware LLC Acts
  • What are the key opportunities in the mandatory, default and permissive provisions of the DLLC Act?
  • What are the pitfalls when forming Delaware LLCs?
