Although not legally required for incorporation in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, we highly recommend that operating agreements be drafted between members of an LLC before the entity is formed. These documents, in many cases, prove to be the only extant document delineating the business structure, from the financial to the logistical, and frequently because of this they help to avoid costly litigation between members or between the LLC and the government. If you and your LLC are interested in drafting an operating agreement please feel free to utilize our template, available below in both MS Word and PDF formats, which has been drafted by our in-house lawyer.
