Determining Corporate Entity: Liability Considerations
How do you protect yourself and your family from liability if your new business faces litigation? How do you separate your personal life from business transactions? The entity you choose for your business will determine your individual liability for business dealings and tax liability in the years to come.
Our corporate law attorneys advise clients about entity choice, including partnerships, LLCs, professional limited liability companies (PLLCs), S corporations, C corporations and more. We recommend that you also speak to your tax accountant for guidance about how each entity affects your tax liability.
