    Event Synopsis:
    In establishing a Limited Liability Company (LLC), a well-drafted operating agreement is a must. It governs the course of the company and provides a framework in terms of those decisions that the board or others must approve or consent to in the future. One important feature of an operating agreement includes blocking rights on major decisions which are oftentimes given to the company's secured lenders or major investors.

    In uncertain loan situations, blocking rights may play a vital role in a lender's willingness to make a loan or ability to protect its collateral position upon default. If a secured lender holds these rights, it may be able to block, for example, the company from filing bankruptcy, engaging in a restructuring, selling or dissolving. Recently, however, courts have challenged a lender's ability to utilize their blocking rights on major decisions.

    The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders to provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of blocking rights in LLC operating agreements. In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, speakers will discuss how blocking rights help and impede lenders, investors and others. They will also provide significant insights on recent bankruptcy court decisions addressing the exercise of these blocking rights.
