Current as of: 2009
347.115. 1. The interest of a member in a limited liability company is personal property and, except as provided in the operating agreement, may be assigned in whole or in part. An assignment of an interest does not entitle the assignee to participate in the management of the business and affairs of the limited liability company or to become or to exercise the rights of a member, except as provided in section 347.113. An assignee that has not become a member shall only be entitled to receive, to the extent assigned, the share of distributions and profits, including distributions representing the return of contributions, to which the assignor would otherwise be entitled with respect to the assigned interest. Unless otherwise provided in the operating agreement, a member shall not cease to be a member as a result of the pledge, encumbrancing or the granting of a security interest in the interest of such member in the limited liability company.
2. An assignee who has become a member has, to the extent assigned, the rights and powers, and is subject to the restrictions and liabilities, of a member under the articles of organization, the operating agreement and sections 347.010 to 347.187. An assignee who becomes a member is liable for any obligations of his assignor to make contributions.
3. Unless otherwise provided in the operating agreement, if an assignee of an interest in a limited liability company becomes a member, the assignor is not released from his liability to the limited liability company under section 347.099 or section 347.109 without the written consent of all members.
