1. Broad authority of LLC directors. LLC agreements typically expressly confer very broad authority on LLC directors to operate the LLC in their discretion, including with respect to transactions in which they and/or the controlling member who appointed them is self-interested. The underlying judicial premise in these cases (often reiterated by the court in its opinions) is that, when an investment is made in a non-corporate entity, the investor is “consciously choosing” to give up the protection of fiduciary duties in exchange for specifically negotiated contractual protections. Thus, the courts have been disinclined to “read in” obligations that are not clearly stated in the agreement. (We note that, in an article published in 2014, Chief Justice Strine and Vice Chancellor Laster questioned the validity of this premise; argued that minority investors in alternative entities typically do notactually negotiate terms; and advocated that the Delaware statute should be amended to make the...

1. The occasions when officer and director liability happens is called piercing the corporate veil. The director is responsible for acting in good faith and using care in a situation the way a normal person would in a similar situation. The business judgment rule protects directors as long as the decision is made with the best intentions for the company and in good faith. This is why a corporation is advantageous as a legal structure because it protects people from liability for the actions and debts in the business. Yet, there are circumstances where liability is limited and the court will hold officers, directors, and shareholders liable. A court does this if it believes the business was not formed for legitimate purposes. If a business is not distinguishable from its owners, courts won't allow owners to benefit from limited liability. As an example, Joe's Bakery Inc. and its owner Joe have the same bank account and Joe signs contracts under his name. Joe may be liable for breaching...
