How a Business Attorney Can Protect You
Clients often ask why they need to form a business entity rather than operating as a sole proprietorship. There are several reasons for this, but a principal reason is to shield yourself from personal liability that may arise from running the business.
For example, if you personally own a commercial property and someone is injured on the property, a court may hold you personally liable, as the property owner, for that person’s injuries. If you held the property in a corporation or a limited liability company, only the company’s assets are exposed, thus protecting your personal assets from judgments against the company.
Paul DePorre advises many clients who own multiple investment properties. He will often establish a separate company for each property. This allows the client to limit liability to the assets owned by that particular company and to protect the assets of the other companies, in addition to protecting personal assets.
