Ask The Consultant
By Chuck Daleo

Q:  We are going to be forming a new Limited Liability Company (LLC) and we will need a Contractor’s License. Our attorney is in the process of putting together the Operating Agreement and a couple of the Partners do not want their name associated with the Contractor’s License. Will the Secretary of State or CSLB require that we furnish them with our agreement?
