liability company if and to the extent that the transferor
gives the transferee the right in accordance with authority described in the

transferor member's obligations to make contributions under Section 20-5 and

under subsection (a) of this Section, the transferor is not released from
the limited liability company under the operating agreement or this Act.

in the management or conduct of the limited liability company's business,
require access to information concerning the company's transactions, or inspect
or copy any of the company's records.
(e) A transferee who does not become a member is entitled to:
(1) receive, in accordance with the transfer,
distributions to which the transferor would otherwise be entitled;
(2) receive, upon dissolution and winding up of the
limited liability company's business:
(A) in accordance with the transfer, the net
amount otherwise distributable to the transferor; and
(B) a statement of account only from the date of
the latest statement of account agreed to by all the members; and
(3) seek under subdivision (5) of Section 35-1 a
judicial determination that it is equitable to dissolve and wind up the company's business.
(f) A limited liability company need not give effect to a transfer until it
has notice of the transfer.
