Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

subsection (a) of Section 35-7 or arising out of conduct in reliance on the dissolution before the third party knew or received a notification of the waiver are not adversely affected.

    Sec. 35-50. Member's power to dissociate; wrongful dissociation.
    (a) A member of a member-managed company has the power to dissociate from a company at any time, rightfully or wrongfully, by express will under subdivision (1) of Section 35-45. If an operating agreement does not specify in writing the time or the events upon the happening of which a member of a manager-managed company may dissociate, a member does not have the power, rightfully or wrongfully, to dissociate from the company before the dissolution and winding up of the company.
    (b) The member's dissociation from a member-managed company is wrongful only if it is in breach of an express provision of the agreement.
    (c) A member who wrongfully dissociates from a member-managed company is liable to the company and to the other members for damages caused by the dissociation. The liability is in addition to any other obligation of the member to the company or to the other members.
    (d) If a member-managed company does not dissolve and wind up its business as a result of a member's wrongful dissociation under subsection (b) of this Section, damages sustained by the company for the wrongful dissociation must be offset against distributions otherwise due the member after the dissociation.
    (e) Unless otherwise provided in writing in an agreement, a company whose original articles of organization were filed with the Secretary of State and effective on or before January 1, 2001, shall continue to be governed by this Section in effect immediately prior to January 1, 2001, and shall not be governed by this Section.

    Sec. 35-55. Effect of member's dissociation.
    (a) Upon a member's dissociation from a limited liability company:
        (1) the member's right to participate in the
    
management and conduct of the company's business terminates, except as otherwise provided in Section 35-4, and the member ceases to be a member and is treated the same as a transferee of a member;
        (2) the member's fiduciary duties terminate, except
    
as provided in subdivision (3) of this subsection (a);
        (3) the member's duty of loyalty under subdivisions
    
(1) and (2) of subsection (b) of Section 15-3 and duty of care under subsection (c) of Section 15-3 continue only with regard to matters arising and events occurring before the member's dissociation, unless the member participates in winding up the company's business pursuant to Section 35-4; and
        (4) subject to Section 30-25 and Article 37, any
    
distributional interest owned by the person immediately before dissociation in the person's capacity as a member is owned by the person solely as a transferee.
    (b) A person's dissociation as a member of a limited liability company does not of itself discharge the person from any debt, obligation, or other liability to the company or the other members which the person incurred while a member.
