Unanimous Written Consent (UWC)

Short for Action by Unanimous Written Consent, a UWC is a legal document that memorializes the unanimous consent of the board of directors and/or members of a corporate entity on a specific issue or action.


A common example of a UWC is a Unanimous Written Consent in Lieu of an Organizational Meeting, which is used to approve an entity’s bylaws or Operating/Company Agreement, and other things requiring unanimous consent, without a formal meeting.
