When nominees acting against the decisions of the real owners: nominee LLP members are used to protect the privacy of the beneficial limited liability partnership owner when there is a legitimate, commercial reason to do so. A nominee member will receive and act upon instructions given by the real owner and put their names on the paperwork that provides public information about the LLP. This is done in order to protect the names and interests of the beneficial owner.
However, there is a situation that can arise, when the nominee LLP member will act against the decisions of the real owner and this is when the real owner is breaking the law. Whether intentionally or inadvertently, breaking the law will steer the entire LLP towards the courtroom and into trouble, which is why it is the duty of the nominee member to take corrective action regarding any illegal decisions that have been made.
