Whenever someone is referred to us because they are in a dispute with a member of their LLC or another shareholder of a corporation, the word dissolution must enter the discussion. But like a marital divorce, we know dissolution gets ugly, especially in closely-held businesses or family businesses, and never solves the underlying problems. We always try to find a way to avoid litigation but sometimes that is the client's only recourse and a lawsuit seeking dissolution of the company the only path.
Connecticut is closer to adopting the Uniform Limited Liability Act, and that's good news. You can follow the bill (HD 5259) here. Connecticut's current LLC act has not undergone significant change since 1993, and change is good. A limited liability company is the choice du jour for small businesses in Connecticut.
