How is management structure set post-formation?

I am in the process of forming a Limited Liability Company (LLC) and I am looking to understand how the management structure will be set up post-formation. I have a business partner who will be a co-owner of the LLC and I am interested in learning the best way to ensure that both of our interests are represented in the management structure. Furthermore, I am interested in learning what type of documentation will be needed to ensure that our management structure is properly set up and in compliance with applicable laws.

When forming a Limited Liability Company (LLC) with a business partner, it's crucial to establish a clear and effective management structure to represent both of your interests. To do so, you should create an Operating Agreement, a customizable document that outlines the management structure, ownership percentages, and roles and responsibilities of each member. You can choose between a member-managed or manager-managed LLC, depending on your and your partner's roles and preferences. Defining ownership percentages, management responsibilities, voting rights, meeting procedures, and compliance with state laws is essential. Legal counsel should be consulted to draft the Operating Agreement and ensure compliance with specific state regulations, and it's important to regularly review and update the document to adapt to changes as your business evolves.
