LLC buyout questions

I am a 1/3 owner of a 3 member LLC, and wish to get out of the business I helped build. The other two want to continue without me, possibly bringing in another to fill my spot, or just keeping the business between them. I feel I am entitled to 1/3 of all the LLC’s assets, as well as a portion of the future gains, because the others will be moving forward based on all the help I’ve contributed to get them there. I have a feeling that the other two owners do not want to give me what is fair, and I am requesting that if we do not come to an agreement, we should liquidate the business and then they can start over without my help. Can I force liquidation? Can the other two owners prevent me from getting a cut of the future income? They wouldn’t be where they are without me!!! Thank you for your time and consideration!

Re: LLC buyout questions

You should have signed an Operating Agreement when the business was formed that spells out the steps for selling your interest. If not, you have rights as a minority member that are enforceable in court, usually through liquidation.
