How to Avoid Veil Piercing


Are your LLC managers taking all reasonable measures to prevent veil piercing?

One of the principal legal benefits for business owners and real estate investors in using LLCs to conduct their businesses and hold their real estate is the limited liability shield provided by LLC statutes to LLC members and managers. This shield protects the personal assets of these members and managers from being at risk for debts of the LLC and the business assets and real estate the LLC owns. This white paper reviews what to do if the courts pierce the veil and how your managers should respond.
