Newly formed corporations in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts aren’t necessary obligated by state law to draft a corporate bylaw document, however we recommend highly that all new corporations do draft one for the following reasons: it very well could be the only definitive document outlining member shares, member responsibilities, meeting times, and any and all other regulations the members wish to abide by. Because of these features this document could save the corporation a massive headache down the road as possible litigation would be avoided with a clear cut constitution of the business being in existence. Ensure that each member gets a copy to bullet-proof the document’s purpose. If you would like to use our free template below, available in both MS Word and PDF formats, please feel free to do so.
