Proceeds and expenses.

(a) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (b):

(1) any proceeds or other benefits of a derivative action, whether by judgment, compromise, or settlement, belong to the limited liability company or series thereof, as the case may be, and not to the derivative plaintiff; and

(2) if the derivative plaintiff receives any proceeds, the derivative plaintiff shall immediately remit them to the limited liability company or series thereof, as the case may be.

(b) If a derivative action is successful in whole or in part, the court may award the plaintiff reasonable expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees, from the recovery of the limited liability company or the series thereof, as the case may be.
