Habitat for Humanity 2017

BGS continued its tradition of working on a Habitat for Humanity home this year. It is the fourteenth year we have helped this wonderful charity. Working on the project were attorneys Scott Lepak, Dan Ganter, Tammy Schemmel, Nicole Wiebold, Timothy Erb, Kenzie Corrow and staffers Brian Harvison, Tracie Davis, Valerie Mettayer, Terry Pahl, Laurel Randall, and Brenda Rodriguez. This year’s project was prefabricating walls at the panel plant in Minneapolis. The prefabbed walls are then delivered to Habitat sites for assembly. The BGS team constructed enough walls to build one-half of a house!

Limited Liability Companies and a New Minnesota Statute

The Minnesota legislature has adopted a new statute governing limited liability companies, Minnesota Statutes Chapter 322C.  On January 1, 2018, all 322B LLC’s will be automatically converted to 322C LLC’s.  This conversion could result in significant inconsistencies in the LLC governing documents which could cause problems in the future.  Therefore, we are advising all 322B LLC’s to amend their Articles of Organization and adopt Operating Agreements which would avoid any inconsistencies.   If you would like more information, call Dan Ganter at 763-783-5127.
