Depending upon the State(s), the corporation might convert to an LLC or it might merge with and into an LLC. Before undertaking such a transformation, the organizational documents must be reviewing for any consent requirements. In addition, you must comply with the laws of the State(s) of the company(ies). Please consult with an experienced Business Attorney to find the best option and to fully comply with all applicable requirements.
The foregoing discussion does not establish an attorney-client relationship, is qualified by the limited facts presented above, and should not be relied upon as legal advice. To obtain definitive legal advice upon which one can rely necessitates retaining an attorney who is qualified in this particular area of the law.
The easy route is if your state allows for conversion from the one to the other. If so, contact the Secretary of State and get the appropriate forms to file. If not, it becomes more complicated and you will need the services of a business attorney. There are several routes which could be followed and such counsel can help you pick and pursue the one which works best for you.
There are a handful of facts that will make a difference, including how many shareholders your corporation has and who they are, whether they will consent to the transformation, whether your governing documents allow for it, etc.
If you have your governing documents available, you should contact a local business attorney for help.
