Pre-Litigation Asset Protection - Small or medium size business owners: Protect your personal assets from business lawsuits by properly forming your start up corporation or limited liability company ("LLC"). Business owners need and want to spend their time running their business, not defending themselves against personal liability. But many small and medium size business owners have not completed or are not properly using their LLC-business asset setup. For example, do you have an Operating Agreement? Do you need one? Are you using your LLC designation? Do you have a reference to tax code provisions somewhere in your governing agreements? Some quick business law tips can protect you from personal liability where you thought you were protected. Using a business lawyer for your business can let you sleep at night, knowing you are protected.
