Part 9. Dissolution

Agency Power And Liability Of Members Or Managers After Dissolution

35-8-904. Agency power and liability of members or managers after dissolution. (1) Except as provided in subsections (3) through (5), after an event causing dissolution of the limited liability company, a member may bind the limited liability company:

(a) by an act appropriate for winding up the limited liability company's affairs or completing transactions unfinished at dissolution; and

(b) by any transaction that would have bound the limited liability company, if it had not been dissolved, if the other party to the transaction does not have notice of the dissolution.

(2) The filing of the articles of termination is presumed to constitute notice of dissolution for purposes of subsection (1)(b).

(3) An act of a member that would not otherwise be binding on the limited liability company under subsection (1) is binding if it is authorized by the limited liability company.

(4) An act of a member that would be binding under subsection (1) or would be otherwise authorized and that is in contravention of a restriction on authority may not bind the limited liability company to persons having knowledge of the restriction.

(5) If the articles of organization vest management of the limited liability company in managers, a manager may exercise the authority of a member under subsection (1) and a member may not exercise the authority if the member is acting solely in the capacity of a member.

(6) A member or manager who, with knowledge of the dissolution, subjects a limited liability company to liability by an act that is not appropriate for the winding up of the company's business is liable to the company for any damage caused by the act.
