WHEN IS A PARTNER A PARTNER?

The new post by Peter Mahler under the link below is not about LLCs or their members, nor is it about section 199A; it’s about law firms and their “partners.”  But I’m providing the link because Peter’s post is excellent and because I presume many readers of it will be lawyers who are (or aren’t?) partners in their firms..

Weaponized LLCs

Under the link below is a post by Peter Mahler, the world’s expert (in my opinion) on disputes among LLC members and managers. His post is about a “weaponized” LLC—i.e., one in which the majority have very substantial rights vis a vis the minority under the governing operating agreement. In my experience, “weaponized” LLCs are common; I’ve formed more than a couple myself.
