New Jersey approves remote meetings for business entities, amends naming conventions for limited liability partnerships

November 01, 2021 (1 min read)

In response to the ongoing COVID pandemic, New Jersey legislators approved statutory amendments allowing business entities to conduct annual meetings, member meetings, and shareholder meetings remotely. The amendments permit entities to use reasonable measures to verify remote participation, allow remote attendees to participate and vote in the meetings, and record proceedings remotely.

Legislators also amended naming conventions for limited liability partnerships. The change bars partnerships from using an alternate name when conducting business activities unless the entity has registered the alternate name, or includes its actual name in transactions along with the alternate name.

These and other changes are captured in the 2021 edition of CSC’s New Jersey Laws Governing Business Entities Annotated, a comprehensive collection of updated statutes and case notes that ensures practitioners are working with the most up-to-date information.

The 2021 edition features the latest statutory changes through chapter 130 of the 2021 New Jersey legislative session. A legislative summary provides a snapshot of changes, and amendments are listed the book’s Table of Sections Affected for easy reference.

This newest edition also includes more than a dozen new case notes from state and federal courts interpreting the law. New cases are listed in the Table of New Annotations, and new cases are highlighted in the body of the book with gray bars.

More than 70 fillable New Jersey forms for incorporation/formation, qualification, mergers, dissolution, and name reservation for all entity types are available via the LexisNexis Store online download center. A listing of the forms can be found in the book’s appendix. An up-to-date Fee Schedule provides the fees for business entity filings.

New Jersey Laws Governing Business Entities is available as a softbound book or as an ebook, compatible with dedicated e-reader devices, computers, tablets and smartphones that use e-reader software or applications. It is also available on the LexisNexis Digital Library.
