1705.25 Authority of managers.

(A) If the management of a limited liability company is reserved to its members, all of the following apply:

(1) Every member is an agent of the company for the purpose of its business, and the act of every member, including the execution in the company name of any instrument for apparently carrying on in the usual way the business of the company binds the company, unless the member so acting has in fact no authority to act for the company in the particular matter, and the person with whom he is dealing has knowledge of the fact that he does not have that authority.

(2) Unless the act is authorized by the other members, an act of a member that is not apparently for the carrying on the business of a limited liability company in the usual way does not bind the company.

(a) Assign the property of the company in trust for creditors or on the assignee's promise to pay the debts of the company;

(1) Every manager is an agent of the company for the purpose of its business, and the act of every manager, including the execution in the company name of any instrument for apparently carrying on in the usual way the business of the company binds the company, unless the manager so acting has in fact no authority to act for the company in the particular matter, and the person with whom he is dealing has knowledge of the fact that he does not have that authority.

(2) Unless it is authorized by the members, an act of a manager that is not apparently for the carrying on the business of a limited liability company in the usual way does not bind the company.
